Five identical black-and-white photographic prints of Queen Latifah during the filming of the video for her single "Fly Girl." Latifah looks sideways at the camera with lips pursed and her right hand held up in an "L" shape. She wears a multi-colored turban and matching jacket in a woven design and large drop earrings. The photograph is signed and dated on the front with inscriptions on the back by Bill Adler identifying the photographer, subject, location, and date.
