Photographer and art director Adrienne Raquel is no stranger to making opportunities for herself. Entering a professional landscape that has been criticized for its lack of female inclusion, the New York-based creative mobilized to be the narrative that didn’t yet exist. After finding a passion for the art form in college, Raquel made it her goal to beautifully portray women of color in a positive manner through her work. And as a black woman herself, her intention was to reposition the articulation of the female gaze away from the male-dominated arena. Now, her impressive portfolio is a testament to her distinct point of view.

Conceptually, as an artist, Raquel is no like other in her class. Her corpus features a collection of evocative works that elicit playful, vibrant and nostalgic aesthetics. The portraiture and still lifes flirt soft colors and landscapes around the subject, subverting how a viewer typically views them. With every opportunity, she aims to amplify the voices of women by offering them a new platform that presents them in a different light. Her proclivity to actively create a more inclusive space is the reason she’s the latest inductee into Reebok‘s Club C initiative, a collective of like-minded creatives who are defying the status quo. As the Ambassador of Aesthetics, Raquel brings an artful voice to an industry needing to provide more space for creators like her.
