Black Love: Photography Exhibit by Esotericimages

Come view still life photographs of Oakland families loving each other. A wonderful representation of our community. All original artwork by photographer Sonjhai Meggette. For more information about the photographer and her art read her personal statement below. 

My name is Sonjhai Meggette and I reside in greater Bay Area-Oakland, CA. I am the visionary and photographer of Esotericimages.com and photography is a portal for me to change how we perceive beauty. Images are vitally important to our personal development and it may help us to accept who we are authentically. Due to the lack of positive representation of African American descendants, I am committed to raising public awareness of how authentically beautiful we are by reinforcing positive images with photography. "Black Love" explores family, community, and fashion in black and white.

Due to the popularity of this exhibit it has been extended to March 31, 2017. Thank you to Ms. Meggette from Esotericimages.com for her willingness to extend!
