“What Beyoncé Tells Us Without Saying a Word”

“To watch Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is to take a master class in image construction. In 2011, she severed professional ties with her father and former manager, Mathew Knowles, who’d had a strong hand in controlling her image. In the nine years since, she has evolved dramatically as a star. She’s almost entirely stopped giving interviews and instead communicates who she is as an artist through images. Beyoncé’s image-making over this period has been lauded for speaking meaningfully to the political moment. Looking closely at some of the most formative visuals of her career tells a more complicated story about the artist.” More from Angelica Jade Bastién at Vulture.
