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.)
The so-called ‘Meroitic period’ was the last major phase of the history of the kingdom of Kush in Nubia. The term is used to cover the approximate period 300 BC-AD 350. The earlier date roughly marks the date when the kings began to be buried at Meroe, which had already been functioning as a capital city for some time. The highpoint of this phase was in the first century BC and first century AD, and pottery was one of its most outstanding products. There is definite variation in products from various parts of the kingdom, suggesting the existence of local ceramic centres, particularly in the north (Faras and Karanog). However, the range of types and decoration has made the creation of an internal chronology rather difficult. Two examples are given here to illustrate two of the principal types: those with mostly figured decoration in red and black on white, and a decorative style mostly in black on an orangeish ground, with floral and some figured decoration.
Okay. The my lil housefire saga has come to a close at about 9:30 am today. I studied up, took notes, printed out endless pages of fotos and text messages, paid a lawyer for two hours consultation, and did my best in court. But I lost the case and we have to vacate the house within 3 days,…
