PHOTOVOICE PROMPT #5: Lost & Found

What do you see here? (Addressed to the whole group)

Twisted platts

Uniform styling

Culture

Why did you take this photo? (Addressed to the photographer)

To show natural, black hairstyles are becoming more popular again.

Culture: appreciation for natural hairstyles.

Economics: more reasonable expenses: less money spent on chemicals and dyes.

Social: start to embrace who we are: not copying other cultures: we are comfortable with ourselves.

What is really happening here? (Addressed to the whole group—alternatively what does the photograph represent?)

Acceptance

Order

Confusion: rolled up effect in corkscrew: protectiveness

Focus: tunnel vision

Green: durability, economic, cultural, and social growths

Naturalness: no chemicals: last longer: less foreign influencers: less fragmented culture

Longevity: reliability, economic progress, calmness

Hazy sky: Grenada’s dull, gloomy culture: far from our roots: following Brazilian weaves instead of natural hairstyles; down-spirited attitudes: go back to natural roots: stop throwing away money: stop giving money to foreign merchants who are exploiting us

Contrast of Hazy sky/light: ray of light: natural hair coming back

Head: mindfulness or awareness: conscious experience: knowledge about something: like an isolated tree standing tall

Corkscrew patterns: represent circular motion: Grenada going around in circles: Grenada is confused: perfect isolation: also shows unity in keeping to itself, coiled up in balls of corkscrew balls

PHOTO Title: Naturally On Point
