“Queer Africa 2”: colorful embroidered portraits by Danielle Clough

Queer Africa 2 is a fascinating series created by South African artist Danielle Clough, which consists of embroidered versions of real portraits taken to illustrate the cover of the homonym book project.

A series of miniature portraits embroidered from photos I have taken for the cover of the book Queer Africa 2. This project has such an amazing energy because how different each person has been, yet all all them are equally excited to be a part of the process. Queer Africa 2 is an anthology of stories about the many ways in which we love each other on the continent. Queer Africa 2 has been nominated for the prestigious Lambda Award.
