Sam Gonçalves is an Afro-Brazilian model with vitiligo who partnered with Haitian model Jean Woolmay Denson Pierre for a photo series called "Pure Black". Shot by photographer Vinicius Costa, the series is meant to push back against the ways we limit our conception of what Blackness can look like. "We just want to show the world that Black is Black, no matter what," says Gonçalves. "We all suffer. We are Black." Incredible!…

Photo series: MAN UP - A Boy's Struggle for Male Sensitivity

Posted on March 22, 2017 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

A few months ago, 17-year-old Towela Kams, a Botswana based photographer, decided she wanted to do a project addressing male sensitivity as a response to hearing the phrase "man up." Having always centered misfits, outcasts and the misunderstood in her work, it made sense for Kams to eventually tackle gender norms, but she also felt the project needed a male perspective to be authentic.



A natural collaborator, she partnered with Amogelang Tshenyo, a…

Body positivity and self-reflection are highlighted in ‘The Mirror Stage’ project

'The Mirror Stage' is the new photography project by photog Phuong-Thao Hoang, Creative Director (and model) Magnus Juliano, and model Melrose. Aimed at facilitating a conversation around social issues and body positivity, The Mirror Stage gets its name from Jacques Lacan’s psychoanalytic theory of the same name that deals with an infant’s first recognition of themselves in a literal mirror, and how that shapes our early sense of self.

This Afro-Latina artist is bluntly bringing the issues of Black women to the forefront

Posted on March 21, 2017 at 3:49pm 0 Comments

Hey! I really appreciate the feature you wrote! Do you think you could edit the sentence RXMXT identifies as a genderqueer demiboy, asexual and panromantic to just RXMXT identifies as queer? Thank you so much!

You published a featured article today about #MelaninMonday. Credit for Melanin Monday should be given to bonitaapplebelle from tumblr, not Young Paris. She created it first and started a movement on the site within the black community and he took the name and started plastering 'Melanin' on photos. Please give proper credit where its due.
