The Noir Image is a collaborative project, breaking barriers by collecting diverse representations of people of color that are otherwise not reflected in traditional media. Historically, the visual narratives surrounding P.O.C. have largely excluded our complexity. The Noir Image is here to destroy stereotypes and unapologetically shine light on our beauty, intelligence, and power.
