My Mane Narrative is inspired by the individual experiences of the projects authors (Clarke and Laboss) and their respective journeys to embracing their own natural/Afro hair styles.

Clarke and Laboss want to create a photographic and editorial display that gives people across genders, generations and geographies a voice to share the pain and joys of their journey to embracing their natural/Afro hair.
