Best Photography Series – Glenford Nunez’s TYP Photography Studio’s The Coiffure Project

Published: September 19, 2012

TYP Photography Studio, 11 N. Eutaw St., (410) 660-5134

Local fashion photographer Glenford Nunez has shot some slick fashion spots for the likes of Relapse magazine and The Washington Post, but images that we just can’t turn away from fill up his Coiffure Project series. The idea is brilliantly simple: attention-grabbing photographs of black women with their natural hair. Nunez appears to be a detail-oriented photographer, as both his black-and-white and color images bear the mark of an eye attuned to how light is going to play off eyes, skin, and hair, and the results are striking photos of black women that are simultaneously fashion magazine-glamorous and 1968 raised-fist politically potent.


In effort to do more things Baltimore, I went to the Farmer’s Market two blocks down from the barbershop.

Every Tuesday there are vendors selling produce, treats, and food at the park near the University of Maryland Medical School, Baltimore.  I stood in line for about 25 minutes for an AWESOME turkey burger by Mr. Gary Thornhill’s stand…I forgot the official name of the company.

This turkey burger was massive with cheese and barbeque sauce…the pic doesn’t do it justice. The flavors were really nice.  I’m most certainly going back next week.  The only complaint is that onions are mixed in the ground turkey…I HATE onions.  I just picked them out.

In this week’s FLASHBACK, we feature LL Cool J’s I’m Bad.  This is a hip hop classic.

I’m Bad” (sometimes spelled I’m BAD) is the first single from LL Cool J‘s second album, Bigger and Deffer. It was released in 1987 for Def Jam Recordings.   I’m Bad made it to several Billboard Charts, including #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, #4 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, #2 on the Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales, #3 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play and #1 on the UK Singles Chart.[1][2] This single was followed by “I Need Love” and “Go Cut Creator Go“.

The song samples the Theme from “S.W.A.T.” by Rhythm Heritage, Federal Signal Corporation‘s famous Q2B siren, and an interpolation of the theme song from the 1960s syndicated animated series Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse. It is the first mainstream rap song where the phrase ‘motherfucker’ was used (usually edited from radio airplay).

Barbers, Jarrett and Joe, give a set of cousins a fresh new look.  These two clients were searching for a new shop to handle their Jersey Shore looks and my guys hooked them up.

I’m sorry I didn’t get the “after” shots but I had to pass out flyers. 🙁
