Lovely work by photographer Marcus Maddox from Nashville, Tennessee. Created with the help of production/floral designer Rachel Wayne, as well as stylists Christine Tran Schumann and Elliott Weaver, the ongoing series utilizes subtle colour contrasts to highlight the significance and beauty of diversity. Maddox’s figures don’t don much colour themselves but, as he explains, that’s kind of the point:
“White clothing and light spaces take up of the majority of each image—while black skin is a smaller, but important element of each image. This is supposed to represent the uniqueness and significance of people of colour in a mostly white country.
