My original idea was to take four pictures of two people, and I wanted them to express an emotion they feel on the average day. I also wanted them to show the emotion they run to, to cover up the real emotion. I wanted to also sew on top to demonstrate the emotion in sewing.
I changed my mind and didn’t something different.
As I was working on it I found myself going into the African Tribal theme. I took a picture of the women and turned it black and white on Photoshop. The only color I wanted in this project the thread. I came up with the name Urban Nubia because here in America we Africa Americans are far from our ancestry so that makes us the new black.
