Lap of Luxury

Luxury, especially when associated with old money, is usually reserved for white individuals. Historically, most Black people did not have access to jobs that provided the substantial wealth we now see in places like the Upper East Side. I wanted to envision a world where Black people did have that access — a world where there is no racial wealth gap. I want people who see this shoot to be able to better visualize what black people living in luxury looks like: mansion, preppy outfits, and all.
