Alyscia Cunningham is an entrepreneur, author, filmmaker and photographer who has contributed to the Smithsonian, National Geographic, Discovery Channel and AOL. After the
success of her first book, Feminine Transitions, a photography book encompassed with portraits
of raw feminine beauty, Cunningham published her second photography book and upcoming documentary film, I Am More Than My Hair. The book features 138 portraits of 46 females and the stories of their experience with hair loss as well as females who cut their hair in solidarity of a loved one. The film includes interviews and dives into the connection of their emotions in relation to the media's portrayal of beauty standards. Alyscia creates these, and future projects,
with the consideration of art for social-change.
Alyscia leads the Washington DC Metro Chapter of Moms-In-Film and also one of the FrontLine Voices for Stop the Beauty Madness, a campaign focused on changing the dynamics of beauty globally.
Her work has been featured on The Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, The Washington Post, Fox 5,
ABC 7 and Proud2BMe.
