Glenford Nunez’s TYP Photography Studio’s The Coiffure Project

PUBLISHED: SEPTEMBER 19, 2012

TYP Photography Studio, 11 N. Eutaw St., (410) 660-5134Local fashion photographer Glenford Nunez has shot some slick fashion spots for the likes of Relapsemagazine and The Washington Post, but images that we just can’t turn away from fill up his Coiffure Project series. The idea is brilliantly simple: attention-grabbing photographs of black women with their natural hair. Nunez appears to be a detail-oriented photographer, as both his black-and-white and color images bear the mark of an eye attuned to how light is going to play off eyes, skin, and hair, and the results are striking photos of black women that are simultaneously fashion magazine-glamorous and 1968 raised-fist politically potent.
