Three things inspired this feature:
This detailed Twitter thread about representing Black people's hair in art and literature.
A conversation with a friend about how it's hard to find minority representation in DA's galleries.
The latest annual Game of Genres writing contest, where one of the genre choices was non-Western futuristic. (Hm, who suggested that? Definitely not me. )I off-handedly remarked that I should feature some non-white portraits, and that quickly turned into "yes, let's do this." So here's a collection pulled from my favourites, showcasing faces from around the world and speculative imagery of all kinds: futuristic, fantastic, sci-fi-tic, and more. Enjoy!
