Dazed Beauty presented Tallawah, a new exhibition by photographer Nadine Ijewere and hairstylist Jawara. The exhibition comprised a series of images shot in Kingston, Jamaica and London, UK featuring Jamaican women across generations. Tallawah is Jawara’s ode to being raised in 1990s Dancehall culture in Kingston, and the cultural status and selfhood encoded in the ways that women in his family creatively styled their hair for school, church, and dance parties. Working with Jamaican women across generations, Jawara calls forth the heritage of Jamaican Dancehall style, and amplifies each subject’s personal identity.
