The loCked Glitch
-Art Exhibition-
Collaboration statement:
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.
“Locked Glitch” is a representation of a dream-like magic that lies within blackness. Leonel's personal experiences, fantasies and desires in regards to his black awakening become the source of inspiration for his surrealistic scenes.  A world created from a place of vulnerability and empowerment where natural hair and locs blend organically with their surroundings.
