Denisse Ariana Perez travelled through the continent capturing different depictions of Africa and masculinity. 

“My main purpose with this series was not to portray African marginalised communities in a victimised or somber light like they usually are portrayed in most media,” says Perez. “Instead, I wanted to celebrate and empower them through portraits that were more artistic, abstract and intimate. I’ve consciously taken on a personal mission to use photography and storytelling to highlight the beauty of Afro-communities and other marginalised groups that I feel inspired by and connected to across the world.”
