We love to share many images on our facebook depicting African fashion, style and beauty, some from designers, some via facebook friends and associates, some from other social media platforms and so on. When it comes to African orientated images, especially in the fields of headwrap, there is one photographer who seems to be making extensive amounts of extraordinary shoot, almost as if every image was meant to be a classic picture. This photographer goes by the name of Joey Rosado, Island Boi Photography.
The images are so authentically African, with astonishing beautiful women, and a perfect retouch. Like many other pages that post his images, when we post them, there are many shares, like, and also there are many compliments received. In our case they are mostly directed at the continent of Africa, or Ghana to be specific. Comments such as ‘Ghanaian women are the most beautiful’, or ‘I wish I was in Africa’, or ‘Keep calm and marry an African Woman’.
Only one thing, Joey Rosado is a New York based photographer. And we would assume the women in his pictures are mostly African American if not based there. And we would assume his pictures are shot in America to. But one can not help not sharing the exceptional beauty oozing from his work. The amazing print headwraps mainly provided by Hadja Ndiaye, the amazing women that model for him, including our most beautiful and favorite from Haiti, Tico.
We hardly do features on FashionGHANA.com as we mainly stick to reporting news, however, this is news in it’s own right as the phenomenon of African fashion and beauty is excelling at a fast rate on social media, and here is one of it’s main contributors. Joey Rosado also has an extensive number of shoots with women/men with dreads, one would wonder if those images are also going viral in the Caribbeans the way his print headwrap images are doing so on African fashion blogs and social media platform. In closing, bravo to Island Boi Photographer for the fabulous images, and next time you wish to be in Africa for some of the fabulous beauty shared on our page, remember to look around you.
