The mission of the "Bay Area Women of Color BDSM Photo Project"  is to expand the aesthetic and cultural perception of the BDSM community by promoting artistically tasteful photographic images of Women of Color in BDSM.

We are bringing Women of Color together with photographers to facilitate the creation of images that demonstrate our strength, beauty and diversity.

Woman of Color in the BDSM community are not coming forward for a variety of reasons, but chief amongst these is the fact that the images most commonly presented are of people unlike themselves. If Women of Color could see other Women of Color participating and playing, they would feel included and acknowledged. This is an essential element in outreach for the BDSM community.

Images have the power to shape our consciousness. These images will represent diversity within our community and demonstrate our lifestyle in a positive and exciting manner.

By encouraging and facilitating the interest and participation of photographers there will be a higher quantity of high quality images of Women of Color represented in alternative media and art.

I have a personal interest in Photography: On the modeling side actually.  I like being depicted in ways that show my strength, my body, my senuality, and my intellect as a strong-minded Woman of Color. I have been working closely with a good friend of mine (and Fetish Photographer) by the name of ANDREW MORGAN, professional photographer.  Together we have discussed this issue and come to the conclusion that there are very few images anywhere to be seen that depict Women of Color actively engaged in the BDSM scene.  
In September 2003 Mr. Morgan and I started a project and had our first photo shoot, which we call the Bay Area Women of Color BDSM Photo Project. Its goal is to produce high quality photographs of Women of Color, which depicts women in interesting and artistic ways.   We would like there to be more images available in the community that can be used to promote the concept of ethnic diversity, and encourage more Women of Color to emerge.   Additionally in 2005, Ms. Xeres, joined our efforts as our Project Coordinator www.mistressxeres.com   Also, MS. VON LIVID is our new Creative Director www.agentfetish.com/.   The women (one man prop. model) who have graciously modeled for us exemplify Ethnic Diversity within the BDSM WOC community ranging from: Femme, Sub, Domme, Daddy Dyke, Daddy Dyke Divas, Butch Dyke, Femme Dyke, Leather Dyke, Lesbian, Pansexual, Bi-Sexual, Heterosexual and various body types.
