The husband and wife team behind CreativeSoul Photography are bringing attention to the amazing things that happen when black girls are allowed to wear and style their natural hair. In their series Afro Art, the photographer duo has taken inspiration from the Baroque period, and the resulting images have cast a spell on just about everyone who laid eyes on them.

“We feel that it is so important for kids of color to be able to see positive images that look like them in the media,” Kahran told My Modern Met. “Unfortunately the lack of diversity often plays into the stereotypes that they are not ‘good enough’ and often forces kids to have low self-esteem.”
