FEATURE: Cinthia Souza glows in Rio de Janeiro-based photographer Pedro Gomes’ latest editorial series

Posted on May 5, 2016 at 6:46pm 0 Comments

In his most recent editorial series, Brazilian photographer Pedro Gomes makes a departure from the more vibrate and colorful portrait of the Rio de Janeiro area we normally see. In this series, he takes us to his favela, or ‘slum’, neighborhood. Still, far from “poverty porn”, model Cinthia Souza basks in the lingering glow of the ‘golden hour’ sunlight. Unabashed, she flourishes against the backdrop, reclaiming the circumstances the photographer had to come to terms with.…

FEATURE: Photographer Lynette Luna uses 'Men With Flowers' series to depict softer side of masculinity

Posted on May 4, 2016 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

‘Men with Flowers' is a new photo series by photographer Lynette Luna. The series plays with the pressures placed on black men to be hyper-masculine, and the aggression-based stereotypes projected onto them, as well. Luna does this by juxtaposing black bodies against pastels and flowers— symbolic representations of femininity. "I photographed a black male with flowers to show a side that is often ignored by society. That these men can be soft, sensitive, and…

FEATURE: Johannesburg’s fashion-forward youths continues to slay at the 10th annual Back To The City Youth Festival

Posted on May 4, 2016 at 1:00pm 0 Comments

Johannesburg is one of my favorite street fashion hotbeds right now. And the lovelies in attendance at the 10th annual Back To The City Youth Festival were no exception. Decked out in dirty sneakers, chunky heel boots, leather jackets, and lots of high-waisted denim, festival go-ers we’re channeling the better looks of 90s fashion and killing it in the process. Check out some of the sweet portraits photographer Cedric Nzaka captured, down below.…

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.
