This is Joy. She is a Chef. She works for Ntanta Delicacies, my mother’s kitchen. She requested that I take her pictures for her birthday. She said, “make me look fine like you.” Of course, I couldn’t do that; photographers are not magicians. What I could do, however, was make her understand that beauty varies. And that even though she doesn’t look like me, she is beautiful.
