#SwipeLeft to view Fede Kortez Rico’s most recent photographic work. Shot this year in Ouidah, Benin, the ‘Hair Is Art’ series captures a woman seated by herself wearing a traditional African hairstyle known as ‘ATTI’. Common across Africa, this hairstyle is crafted by a unique method of hair threading.

Based between Italy and South Africa, Fede Kortez Rico, works globally, as a fashion photographer.
