Faces Of The Day, Ctd

by Zoe Pollock

Cord Jefferson takes issue with the photographer Mike's The Face of Tomorrow project:

For instance, though he finds it necessary to distinguish between English women, Welsh women, and Irish women, he seems to have no reservations whatsoever about lumping all of West Africa into one frame. West Africa is, in fact, a designation that could include upwards of 15 countries, each of which is distinct in language, history, and, yes, skin-tone. Many people don't fathom the immensity of Africa; Mike is one of those people.
