pgp357: GEO’s hood…

a few excerpts from moments of struggled expression   conflicts within one’s self and transient breakdowns that appear as if she is becoming completely undone. but maybe what actually cracks is the ego; that ephemeral shell of false confidence born out naiveté and fear.   When it comes to art, food, fashion, health, fitness music, culture and society Pangea’s Garden continues to bring you the culture that cultivates. We actively strive to be your Afrosensual nexus of ideas,...

a LuvJonez Valentine…

Darius Lovehall: Say, baby… can I be Your slave? I’ve got to admit girl you’re the shit girl…and I’m digging you like a grave. Now, do they call you Daughter to the Spinning Pulsar… or maybe Queen of 10,000 moons? Sister to the Distant yet Rising Star? Is your name Yemaya? Oh, hell no. Its got to be Oshun. Oooh, is that a smile me put on your face, child… wide as a field of jasmine and clover? Talk that talk, honey. Walk that walk, money. High on legs that’ll spite Jehovah. Shit. Who am I? It’s not important. But me they call me brother to...

A night of FELA at Apache Cafe

Vincent Apache Cafe has always been my joint. If you’ve been here in Pangea for a while then you know that Monday nights at the Apache were one of the founding influences on the cultivation of the Garden. So when the opportunity for the earthSistas to have a Monday night of their own, I thought it was great. Last month, earthSistas came together to create a FELA-inspired night that, to me, was pure magic. And I was not the only one, as the previous feature of some of the other photographers’ works showed. earthSistas… FELA… and the Apache Cafe. A beautiful blend of afrosensuality,...

FELA’s muses at the Apache Interlude

Vincent I really should not say this but Pangea’s events are the bane of  my existence.  I mean it, really. They are SO chaotic and organic and stressful. They eat up too much of my time, making it difficult to maintain any semblance of an editorial schedule for the website. The events are always demanding. The earthSistas! THEY ARE DEMANDING! There are SO MANY last minute changes, mishaps and … ‘organic infusions of happenstance.’  I am always worried that the audience won’t appreciate our vision. I never have a true clue of how the night is going to go until...

Sekhmet… studies in blue

Magic is not a miracle. It is an art. It requires study. It requires practice. I am not one to say what I do is magic. I would never say that. I do strive to create art with my efforts in the vain attempt to do justice to what I imagine and what I see. Some of my entries here are the personal journey… the ‘in-between’ moments… of my studies. Images such as the ones featured here would be my roughs, my renderings. I feel very fortunate to be surrounded by creative and experimental muses like earthSista Sekhmet, who are willing to stroll down these paths, that may not have been taken...

In the grip, an Apache interlude

you never know what might happen at the Apache Cafe… whisked to the darkness a single light baring witness one stolen moment a moment with earthSista SweetMoon and earthBrotha Stitch at the Apache Cafe… The Afrosensual Aesthetic is the GardenVoice that pushes the limits and deepens the perspective.

an afrosensual moment…

we didn’t know how far we would go… pressed against the window she moaned and welcomed him longingly, he thrusted deep again and again embraces… bites… kisses an Afrosensual prelude… to a moment AfroerotiK More to come  soon in Scottie’s AfroerotiK and AfroerotiK.com Scottie Lowe, owner and founder of AfroerotiK.com, essentially, creates erotica, for and about people of color, that shows us in a healthy, beautiful, sensual light.

pgp349: ronirone… “a journey to redemption”

“Yearnings of success & acheivement haunt me in my sleep, startle me awake, inspire journeys of sensual exploration & at times suffocate my breath; these yearnings come in many visual manifestations & demand to be inhaled, explored & conquered; these yearnings beckon & insist on being shared with the universe so it’s creative principles live eternal like my soul.” an excerpt from runirone’s Artist’s Statement runirone shoots contemporary nude art for international gallery exhibits, fine art magazines & books. He’s a contemporary artist & director of...

YEME… on the seventh floor

Concrete mountains with soulless glass eyes bore witness to earthSista YEME‘s afrosensual display. On a Sunday afternoon in downtown Atlanta, the young princess toured a seventh floor condo that was stylishly furnished in an urban mix of modern and afrocentric elements. Huge widows allowed the sun to silhouette her figure. She lounged around the space as shecreated inspired poses for capture. YEME was bold, creative, unabashed and truly liberated. Her moves were almost effortless. The earthSista made being beautiful look so easy. And the nubile nymph was as comfortable in her skin in this...

pgp347: UdoU…TheeNaturalWay

Well, its always been a personal goal for me to participate in a nude shoot, so when a close friend of mine asked me what I be a model for his body part shoot I said Yes, with no hesitation.  I am a young woman (19 years young) that is learning to love herself and enjoying loving those around me. I have no significant other as of now but do have someone I deem as special I am talking to. I am a poet poetry is what I love along with writing and talking about love. I would do a nude shoot over and over again and hopefully next time with a partner. Yes I would truly be honored to be an earthSista....

pgp346: Nambi at the Apache Cafe

An instagram montage of the evening. It was earthSista Nambi‘s first night at the Apache Cafe and Lounge. She and earthBrotha Stitch brought a young sista with them to Apache’s Art Monday where an artists’ model stands on the podium, posing, while artists and photographers create works inspired by his or her poses. It was a typical Monday night for the spot. For Nambi and Stitch and friend, it was their first time ever really visiting the spot. And Nambi was the muse. Not having been in this environment before, she was confident, yet apprehensive. The artists and photographers...

Kwesi Abbensetts: Conjurer

A haunting tale of longing, Kwesi experimented with creative collaborations of verse and image. A mystical narrative, Conjurer arouses personal recollections of one’s own yearnings. It is touching and intense and afrosensual. Do you feel her pain? Kwesi Abbensetts is a South American born photographer, hailing from the country of Guyana.  In 2006 while in his final year of film school at Brooklyn College, Kwesi purchased a FUJI 5600 digital camera and from thereon his love for photography blossomed.  Photography gave him the immediacy that was missing from film.  A self taught...

Nambi & Stitch… as we lay

Spoon. A huddled embrace gave way to a whispered heated breath teasing earthSista Nambi‘s ear. Tickled by the sheer closeness, she smiled and turned and locked eyes with the earthBrotha Stitch. A thousand words were spoken in a momentary glance that gave way to a simple kiss which led to a provocative and penetrating embrace. Daring smiles led to tender touches that were not ginger. Fingers dug deep into skin, easing away all stress. Tongues tasted sacred temples & their bodies entwined. And as they lay, the pair, playfully, rolled and thrust, embraced & rode, touched & kissed....

pgp343: FELA’s Beauty, a Pangea Meet&Greet

Above and left: Leonard Herring sets the stage for the next few captures with earthSistas Sindel, Sekhmet and Nambi Over the summer we hosted a group photoshoot that carried the theme, FELA’s Beauty, and we featured images from the event HERE. Pangea has a history of creatives who, on occasion, have created captures with this cultural aesthetic in mind and in this case, photographers Lori Branch, Bobby Williams, Kenya Durden, Leonard Herring and myself  created an inspired collection of Afrocentric sensuality, beauty and glamour in the traditional sense of the word. Tradition may be too...

KieraSati debuts in WillowBMedia’s Primal Paint

“I just like the name Keira someone said it to me yesterday. but Sati is another spelling of “Satet” the Egyptian goddess of bountiful floods. I believe that if mermaids were real that I was one. I’m also a Pisces so water and I are very in tune. I have waves tattooed on my hand.” – earthSista KieraSati This expressive new earthSista came to the attention of the cultivators in Pangea’s Garden through the inspired works of WillowBMedia.
