Tallawah, a new exhibition, by photographer Nadine Ijewere and hairstylist Jawara Wauchope celebrates the way Jamaican women across generations and countries express their selfhood and culture through their hair. The exhibition, hosted by Dazed Beauty, consists of a series of images from Kingston and London that echoes the heritage of Jamaican Dancehall style while simultaneously amplifying each subject’s personal identity. Tallawah is open to the public until Saturday February 1st at Cob Gallery in London. Entry is free.
Aspiring photographer Yone Gordon placed first in photography in the Jamaica Information Service 2019 Heritage Competition. He had placed second and third in previous years.
