Yardie Gals is a social photo documentary capturing the lifestyle and cultural influence of young women who live in London, England of British Afro-Caribbean descent. They are recognized as a subculture and refer to themselves as “Yardie Gals”. These young women have been represented and labeled in today’s society as living an overly provocative and impoverished lifestyle. My work will capture the inner captivity of cultural identities and the beauty of preserving these identities. I will raise awareness surrounding the stereotypes, by contributing to the general black british historical knowledge of self-image and the roles that caribbean women play in today’s society.
