Chicago-based photographer Larry McGhee is only 21, but he has dreams of changing the fashion industry. He wants to highlight black beauty and in his latest shoot, he does just that.




The 21-year-old shot a series of photos in a gorgeous location on the west side of Chicago, with 10 beautiful models wearing monochromatically coordinated black swimsuits and complementary accessories.



McGhee tells Yahoo Style, “My Inspiration for this photo shoot was to recognize African-American women of different shapes and sizes. I am very inspired by African-American art and the culture behind the beauty, so I thought I’d do my own project that projects these things.”


On what he wants the fashion industry to know, he says, “Black women’s culture should be respected and acknowledged, but not copied. People glorify our culture and Instead of just giving us the acknowledgment and recognition that we deserve, they try to appropriate and re-create it in the fashion industry. I don’t think that is right. ”



We are totally celebrating these gorgeous images and the message behind them, and the internet is giving them major applause as well.
