So after enduring half a semester of stressing about the woes of being an emerging adult, I finally got in front of the camera, and omg was it therapeutic!
I had been feigning to co-create, so I got together with these two amazing artists, Josie and Cat, and we turned my apartment into a studio, and created some really dope images!
I’ve been inspired to redefine the ‘African aesthetic,’ just because a lot of the times we either see it appropriated in white culture, as a fleeting trend or fashionable moment, or we see it in the context of Ankara/West African prints, but very rarely are we exposed to a different narrative. So I wanted to create something that would evoke an Afrocentric tone, but in a more unconventional way, and in a way that speaks more to who I am.
