About Black Dolls Project 

Black Dolls Project is a body of work composed of three photographic series. Poupées Noires is the reality of persons classified as non-white. They are Dolls. Flora is the imaginary that is inculcated and inoculated, shaping the reality that surrounds them. Mental-Cide is the terminal phase, letting them disarticulated, both psychically and physically.
