“Secure” a self-portrait photograph by PhenomenaLewis, photographed in her bedroom in March 2020 and it shows PhenomenaLewis, a dark-skinned Black woman with dark black and white skin with only eyes showing staring straight forward under layers of different colored and patterned scarves.
When I made this self-portrait photograph, I was still living in Brooklyn, like all of my other self-portrait photographs, this was taken in my bedroom and I wanted to do a performance where I would cover my whole head with scarves as a symbolism of feeling safe, feeling secure and I came out with this photograph.
