Melanin pop

This was a shoot we organized to embrace our skin, skin color ,identity and of course embrace our rich melanin.

Our society, sometimes looks down on people who are rich in melanin, the called “black” or “dark” skinned in a manner that is not of good intentions. We hope the post would show that melanin popping is beautiful.

Photography with Zena

Zena is a poet/singer and aspiring model. While pursuing her law degree, fell in love with another form of art which is photography..when asked why she ventured into this exciting world she replied saying, “I love art in al it’s forms, so it wasn’t hard to fall for this one, but the one thing that stands out to me about photography is that in it’s on weird way, it manages to make a still picture tell a story…” and that more so is the reason why you should work with JLP…because your life is a story he is ready to capture…

Read between the smiles…to the confidence she practiced…the screams in her silence , thought God put less work in designing her so she put more effort in her accent…the world fooled when she laughed, that she had not a single problem…pain wasn’t a feeling she felt often , but she was pitch black under that golden , she was hurting , pale and broken… But they could not see the crooked in her straight smile….

The Location Shoot

For this shoot I collaborated with the legendary Joseph Lusumpa who I’m convinced is a magician with the lens.

For most of my looks, only the baddest store with all things urban, Swagger the store CAME THROUGH! I’m all about synergy and I wouldn’t have been able to put these looks together without of the help of stylist and ultimate ‘yo bally’ Kabunda Mulenga . I’m truly grateful for them all.
