Conceived in 2015, For Colored Girls is Ed Maximus’ ongoing project countering the incomplete narrative that accompanies the black female form. Often fraught with censorship, politicization and policing, black women find their bodies as a source of shame in the real world and completely absent in the art world. With this series, Maximus continues to collaborate with black women from different walks and experiences to highlight the beauty, glory and celebration that can be found in their nude form. His ultimate objective is to create a body of work in which every black woman can see a piece of themselves.
