Jazz Kamara-Marsh

Jazz Kamara-Marsh's work explores the relationship between hair and the black community. She makes work that deals with the documentation of events and the question of how they can be presented. Her photos are an investigation into representations of hair throughout the media and situations as well as depictions and ideas that can only be realized in photography. By emphasising aesthetics, she creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards conceptual and minimal art can be found. This project has allowed her to highlight the problems that have arisen from the forced ideal beauty and eurocentric barriers put up and how they are being altered in recent years as the black community are learning to embrace who they are and the importance their hair has. Rather than producing sombre images with muted backdrops, she has chosen to incorporate bold colours to create a more pop art style feel where the images represent happiness and boldness, thus showing the power of hair.
