Cranes in the Sky
and Don’t Touch my Hair
are the new videos by Solange Knowles
, directed by the singer together with her husband Alan Ferguson, and with art direction taken care of by Barcelonian photographer Carlota Guerrero
. The music videos embody a visual representation of the concepts explored by Knowles in her latest album, A Seat at the Table
. An ode to the tenacity and spirit of the African American woman, they convey a rejection of silence and passivity in the face of criticism and prejudice while taking back the right to self-expression. The styling enhances themes of femininity without sacrificing freedom of movement, and the choreography flows impeccably in captivating sceneries. A true manifesto of feminine self-knowledge.
