Urban Queens Mini-Documentary

Intended as the first in a series, this mini-documentary is a self-initiated cultural commentary, starring young women who regularly use and frequent tanning salons, nail salons, beauty salons and bronzing clinics in the South Essex area of the UK.

The style is that of vox populi (latin for ‘voice of the people’) – this means there is no narrative or commentary voice-over. Most often seen during news segments, this style allows the personality and attitudes of the interview subjects to become particularly apparent.
