Most of us were raised reading fairytales and enjoying fantasy scenes in movies, cartoons, and even on social media.

However, like many popular genres, black women are hardly ever represented. The thing is many of us love fantasy and have emersed ourselves in it for years.

Whether it be though themed photoshoots or even parties, black women are out here doing the damn thing and one woman decided she wanted to prove just that.

We came across a thread on Twitter by @btsanima who wanted to showcase black women in fantasy. On Twitter she shared the following:

“Black women in fantasy photography thread bc even though our presence is small, I will not be deterred.”

The thread immediately went viral with 69.4K retweets and comments, as well as 214.6K likes, and it’s still picking up steam! 

We gathered a few of them below, and we guarantee you will be amazed at how stunning these photos are:

Bored Panda reached out to the woman behind this viral Twitter thread, who wished to stay anonymous, to talk more about the presence of black women in fantasy movies.

The woman, who goes by the nickname Dee, told the publication that she has been a fan of fantasy for many years.

“While I adore the classics (Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, etc.), the lack of faces that look like mine has always made me feel a little bit out of place,” Dee said.

Some time ago, she discovered a pocket of Instagram that specialized in fantasy photography and found that there was a very small presence of black women.

She also said a photographer has to learn how to photograph dark skin. “Please. Even in high fashion photography, mistakes are being made because people do not bother to adapt to our skin.”

Every photographer in Dee’s thread showed that it can be done, so she urges photographers to do their research and simply make the effort. “I have to emphasize that it really isn’t a big step.”

After all, all artists should be open to learning new ways to improve and expand their range.
