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.
