Lisa Minogue’s series, The Coloured Girls presents high-fashion styled portraits accompanied by a response from each participant to the question, what do the words Coloured Girl mean to you?
The girl’s individual responses feature alongside their portraits in the exhibition. Minogue has powerfully addressed and brought to the fore, the chronic social issue of inequality by playfully painting the faces of the girls to blatantly accentuate their individuality. This technique demands viewers stop and study the subjects’ faces closely to really see the women in the photographs.
