Alek Wek Postcard
The beautiful black model Alek Wek is featured in a great color photograph. Alek poses in a skimpy red top for a breast cancer awareness campaign. The postcard is captioned "Breast cancer has no color lines or boundires".
(Unfortunately my scanner had a had time picking up the details and subtle skin tones of the photos).
Born in Southern Sudan, Alek was raised as part of the Dinka tribe. At fourteen the civil war forced her to flee to London with her younger sister, where they waited two years to be joined by their mother and three more of their eight siblings. It was in London, while attending school for art and design, that Alek was discovered.
