After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Brooklyn phtographer Michael July is officially launching his new coffee table book ‘Afros: A celebration of Natural Hair’ at the end of this month. The 450-page book features men and women sporting afros of different shapes and sizes with personal quotes from the subjects themselves about how they feel about their hair. The book features Cameroonian actress Yana Bille and Ghanaian-Austrian Singer Anbuley.
The book is a tribute to the Afro and comes at a time when a lot of people are starting to embrace their natural tresses.
The book will be available from July 26, and will be celebrated at an already sold out book signing at the Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn. Check out a sneak peek of some of the images below.
