The LockedGlitch

Project:

The LockedGlitch was an exhibition launch on October 5th 2020 by Leonel Piccardo in collaboration with Jahél Tan, The Natural Hair Doctor.

 

The idea for the photo exhibition arose a few years ago in an Amsterdam restaurant.  Photographer Leonel discussed with his loctician, Jahél, founder and owner of The Natural Hair Doctor, his ideas for publishing a book containing a series of personal portraits in which locs (dreadlocks) are central and to share personal stories of Jahél's customers.

Leonel wanted to take this a step further and create a more surreal version, precisely because black culture is often shown in the form of a documentary. Jahél fully agreed with this and the cooperation for this special project blossomed.

"The LockedGlitch" is inspired by the conscious awakening that comes with embracing who you are; Your fears, your perceived weakness, your vulnerability...

 

My experiences within embracing my afro identity, serve as the "catalyst" for my dream-like fantasies."
