“Virgin” a self-portrait photograph by PhenomenaLewis photographed in her bedroom in March of 2020. This photograph shows PhenomenaLewis, a dark-skinned Black woman staring directly at the camera with dark skin wrapped in long baby blue fabric wearing bright magenta (Pink) gloves forming an upside-down triangle with her hands over her belly.
When I made this photograph, I wanted it to be minimal in color and subject.
This was at the beginning of my exploration of self-portraiture.
