Photograph by Dalila Dynes

This photograph is one of the few images that the artist created in this way which makes this art work even more interesting to me. The photograph was exhibited last year, 2017,  at the SOMArts in San Francisco in The Black Woman is God: Divine Revolution exhibition curated by Karen Seneferu and Melorra Green.
