Common Ground Gallery
Opening Reception and Artist Talk: Friday, October 13, 7 – 9 PM
Alysicia Cunningham presents a series of photographs that celebrate the natural beauty of female faces between the ages of 7 weeks and 103 years.
About the artist: Alyscia Cunningham is an entrepreneur, photographer and author who has contributed to the Smithsonian, National Geographic, Discovery Channel, and AOL. In September 2013 Alyscia self- published Feminine Transitions and is currently working on her second book and documentary titled I Am More Than My Hair. Both are social-change photography projects.
Alyscia specializes in promoting our natural beauty because she believes the media does a good job of focusing on our insecurities by bombarding us with ads, proclaiming that their appearance without enhancements is inadequate or faulty. Her portraits are unaltered by Photoshop, and reveal women as they are naturally, without the façade they put on for others.
Alyscia is also one of the FrontLine Voices for Stop the Beauty Madness, a national campaign focused on changing the dynamics of beauty globally. Her work has been featured in The Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, Ashton Kutcher’s A Plus.com, and Proud2BMe.
