Sol Bela


‘My name is Sol Bela Mele, I'm a 24 year old photographer from Guinea Equatorial, I came to Spain when I was 10 and I struggled in my childhood because of the lack of representation on my surroundin gs and in media, I started to work as a fashion blogger and four years later I quit because of the misrepresentation of Black and people of color and decided to create my own references and tell my own story.”

Hair Stories, Is a project I made 2 years ago inspired on the baby hairstyles my Mom used to make for me when I was growing up in my beautiful island Bioko, while sitting up in front of our door while getting ready to go to school, church or a family dinner.
