Renee Cox - Yo Mamma
Renee Cox is a Jamaican born artist (in 1960) bringing back black womanhood in contempory imagery. She never hesitated to be provocative but actually it was less provocation than inability of society to face her images. Here I gathered some good definition shots I could find on the net from her series Yo Mamma. Actually few pictures are in enough good quality to be posted here and on her site, she protects very strongly the rights to use her images in precluding to download them. Not sure it's a good way to act but it's her choice. Her site to see much more of her work here.
