I am inspired to construct this series ‘Brown Beauty” as my final project in order to tap into issues I had as a child and how these themes of beauty and assimilation trained me to think of Eurocentric standards as superior growing up. Alongside that, I am tying in the concept of beauty to other factors of my life that triggered this view of beauty by having a twin. Sisterhood to me was a comfortable experience and uncomfortable experience. Being alongside someone that looked just like you, there were many things people pointed out that were “flaws/quirks” that would be something that people distinguished between my sister and me. For the most part, we were picked apart a lot and this triggered a lot of body image issues because the differences mentioned by people would be very physical and shallow.
