Without much say in the matter, African women are often portrayed as stay-at-home parents or fruit sellers.
So, we decided to ask our SEED Girls how they wanted to be seen.
Produced and directed by Folasade Adeoso, a Nigerian-born social media influencer and artist, Picture Us Ballin’ explores the intersection of women, sport and culture in Senegal. The project required teamwork and strong communication from all 20 girls and coaches, as they each played a role in the creative process -- art directors, stylists, locations scouts, designers and models.
Through the images created, our girls are exploring what they see in themselves and defining how they want to be seen.
We believe their potential is unlimited.
