It is clear that the Euro-centric exclusivity and misrepresentation of Black bodies in space has left a void in architectural representation and design. The aim of my thesis is to highlight Black bodies and their experiences in the built environment. Photography is a crucial tool in documenting and narrating these stories. This typology has three identifiers: the figure, ground, and cultural context.
