According to Scubby, Boglarka Balogh, a journalist and human rights lawyer, says she dressed up as women from various African tribes to bring attention to their decline.
She says during her time in ‘various African countries she became fully aware of the issues regarding a number of endangered tribes, and the speed at which they are fading away’.
The images were created with the help of graphic artist Csaba Szábó, who incorporated Boglarka Balogh’s picture onto portraits of members of the following African tribes: Wodaabe, Daasanach, Arbore, Mursi, Turkana, Karo and Himba communities.
Borglarka says she is concerned about the tribes in Ethiopia ‘where white people are trying to convince the black government to sell the tribal people’s land.’
The images were posted on Bored Panda, but were deleted by Borglarka after she received backlash for the photos:
‘Since I had no intentions to offend anyone and yet I’m not able to answer to all of you, I’ve decided to delete my post.’
What do you think folks. Is this another example of Blackface? Or nah?
