this guy was watching the vmas with me and now he’s educating himself how precious is that

he keeps asking me all these questions about aspects of feminism and he’s like “so basically it’s about letting women do what they want without being judged for it” and I was like yea and he was like “oh okay that’s so simple why isn’t everyone a feminist” it’s precious

Facing Your Work

Hey guys, it’s been a while since I’ve done a super personal post, right?!

It’s insane how much has changed for me over the last year. Shit, more than that. Over the last two years with graduating college, being jobless, the whole NY fiasco, the ex-bf drama, the emotional demons, the broke life, everything. And here I am with a website launched, my artwork making money, about to jump countries, a new found work ethic and happy. I started this tumblr in 2010 as a way to showcase my passion and dedication to Africa. I not only shared that, but I shared myself as well and we all kept evolving. I am venturing into a new area of life and for those like me who wish to combine their passions with their work as well, I leave you this:

Wherever you are in your journey, just know that you have to keep going. One step after another, one brick on top of another, you will build the work you have envisioned. You’ll hit obstacles along the way. It’s inevitable. In regards to my work, not everyone will approach you in a collaborative spirit, not everyone will give you credit as they use your work as a springboard to boost themselves, and you have to decide what your response is going to be. Honestly, the way I think about it is just- face your work. If others want to conduct themselves without integrity, that’s their business. Continue in a spirit of generosity and openness. 

I’ve worked hard to build this platform with the goal of highlighting young African photographers and other creatives, and it’s my hope that their work will be shown on other platforms as well. Sharing new talent is part of documenting our current culture and I do this for the love of the art.(keep reading)

(With the big move coming up, I’m taking every opportunity I can to document my last weeks in New Mexico. Here is a shoot I did with photographers Latisha and Drew in Albuquerque, New Mexico.)
