Plastic off the Sofa
Images captured at the Beyoncé Renaissance World Tour – New Orleans 9/27/2023
Beyoncé’s Renaissance album is a collection of anthems about freeing yourself and embracing your true self, rather than conforming to societal expectations. After her concert in New Orleans, I’m still processing the thoughtful visuals and messages that aim to unlock mental chains and encourage personal growth outside of prescribed roles. For me, the album is about transcending social norms like racism, colorism, and homophobia to become your best self. Beyoncé acknowledges America’s problems but advocates for positive change through activism and self-expression. Her message is a call to let people live freely and authentically. The album inspires shedding the plastic facade of perfection and just being yourself.
