jamilah abdul-sabur

jamilah abdul-sabur submitted these photos with her resume for an internship position and i was really taken with them. i really love the gesture in the image below, and how the hair becomes a powerful character in the photograph, creating such unease by obscuring the girl's face.

and i find the girl's gaze in the image above completely arresting, not to mention the hint of a smirk she wears, or how awkwardly she balances on the side of her foot. and here her hair looks like it's in conversation with the branches behind her.

i really can't decide which image i find stronger.
