“Nappy is the contraction of the word natural and happy, which literally means ‘happy natural.” writes Malick Welli.

The Senegalese-born photographer, who cites Boubacar Touré Mandemory as an inspiration, celebrates natural hair and youth in this latest series “Happynappy.”

The series of portraits is reminiscent of the works of famed portrait photographers Malick Sidibe and Seydou Keita.
