“Adornment” by Photographer Yasmin Yassin

A beautiful series capturing the women in Minnesota’s African diaspora community by photographer Yasmin Yassin. Based in Minneapolis, Yassin focuses on community-based stories and subcultures with the goal of telling stories as authentically as possible and with integrity for those that invite her into their lives. Her work aims to show the commonalities and connections within communities from the eyes of a storyteller — an approach embedded in the tradition of her own East African oral-storytelling heritage. See more images from Yassin’s ongoing personal project, “Adornment,” below.
