The Me I Choose to Be

Imagination, ingenuity and passion collide on the pages of this inspiring tribute to children of color. The poetic composition by Natasha Anastasia Tarpley coupled with the ingenious photography of Regis and Kahran Bethencourt results in an exquisite book that trumpets the magic and unlimited potential of young lives. 

The Bethencourts' imagery mirrors the boldness of Tarpley's words, and their use of light and shadow emphasizes her tone. The models' expressions are natural and authentic, and their raw portrayals exude beauty and confidence, and invite the audience to linger on the pages. Taken individually, the photographs and text are exceptional. Blended together, they create a book of outstanding aspiration and inspiration. Young children of color should revel in the beauty of the subjects that bear resemblance to them, and readers of any race can find insight into their own potential and ambitions. --Jen Forbus, freelancer
