I am so happy to have stumbled across Hilary Sloane and her work. You can’t help but to be drawn in by her collaged gifs.
Based in Melbourne, Sloane’s work ranges from illustrations and animation, to collages and photography.

Inspired Citizen and Ajuma Nasenyana: Speaking Out Against Skin Bleaching
Ajuma Nasenyana is one of the world’s top fashion models. Hailing from Northern Kenya, she began her career as a national champion in running before being discovered by a local modeling agent. She has been invited to walk the world’s most prestigious runways including: Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and Victoria’s Secret. But, growing up, her life wasn’t as glamorous. She was teased incessantly for her dark skin. Since she has become a public figure, Ajuma has made it her mission to spread the word about the skin-bleaching epidemic in Kenya and on the continent of Africa. She hopes, through her words and actions, she can inspire a younger generation to forego this risky practice and love themselves for who they are.
Stop self hate black woman!

Njideka Akunyili: Personal Stories
Her family was certain that she would end up a doctor, but Njideka Akunyili chose to pursue a career in art. Born and raised in Enugu, Nigeria, Akunyili left for the U.S at 16 and her background gives way into her art and the stories they tell. Her collage paintings reveal a personal aspect of her life; Akunyili uses her American husband as a subject in a lot of her pieces. She draws images from popular Nigerian culture and practices, often combining scenes from her traditional wedding along with family photographs.
“It really comes down to me showing my Nigeria. They’re the things I recognize. I need to feel a resonance with the picture for me to choose it in my work. If people can see a new side to Nigeria, I’m helping to add to the stories that already exist.”
