Raphael Albert, Miss Black & Beautiful Sybil McLean with fellow contestants, Hammersmith Palais, London. 1972/2021
Edition of 30
As cultural promoter, entrepreneur and visual storyteller, Albert organised and documented numerous pageants advocating the global ‘Black is Beautiful’ aesthetic of the 1970s. His remarkable photographs serve as testament to a profound moment of self-articulation and collective commemoration in London’s pan Afro-Caribbean/Black British communities – capturing a vibrant time where pageants served as an affirmative platform for expression, performance, and radical celebration of black women’s beauty.
