Here are some of the coolest things we’ve been seeing around the web this week. Hope you like them too.
Whoa – check out these incredible photos of kids recreating the Black Panther posters. They were photographed by London-based Nigerian photographer Àsìkò for Looks Like Me UK (a cool talent agency in their own right) with extraordinary makeup by NyGlorious Face Arts and styling by Basma Khalifa. The detail — just, wow. The entire project is one more beautiful example of how important and meaningful diversity is in films, books, athletics, science — so all kids can see themselves reflected back to them in heroes of all kinds.
