The young women at East Brooklyn Community High School, who call themselves the Infinity Collective, gathered weekly for a leadership program facilitated by Nayo Sasaki-Picou of The Sadie Nash Leadership Project in 2018.
Through the leadership program, the women have been critically engaging in the topics of gender, race, sexuality and how societal standards are constructed by the media.
Working towards their final project of personal portraits, the students have been reimagining how they can create their own curated image of themselves, as women of color.
With the support and collaboration of CHROMA, the students had a final workshop sharing their portrait vision and participated in a photoshoot facilitated by CHROMA in their studio space.
