pgp312: earthSistas’ stroll in black & white

The earthSistas were inspired by the settings and I was inspired by their interactions with nature. The moments are unique and timeless. There is a symphony of scents and sounds as well as visions that intertwine to create and extraordinary body of stimuli. When you are there, you can't help but be inspired by God's design. I feel like I am touched by a momentary awareness of how its all connected...

Nipple Power

So, I have always wanted to pierce my nipples. There is something about nipple jewelry that I always found very arousing and candy for the eyes.  However, due to the fierce sensitivity of my nipples I knew if I attempted to pierce my nipples I would pass out in pain. No Joke. I have a high tolerance for pain, although I don’t like pain, but a needle through my nipple would make my heart stop...

The Afrosensual Portrait on exhibition…

What is Afrosensuality? A few months ago I spoke to a photographer  who didn’t know what afrosensual meant. This makes sense because its not in the dictionary; its not on Wikipedia. No one has created an official definition of the term and I won’t pretend to have the authority to do so, here. I can only tell you what it means to me. You see it started a picture of a sista and her shay ...

KireiNa & Nia… stone, sky and natural glamour

Spontaneous… informally experimental… inspired. It started with a simple request to create some captures of KireiNa’s new hairstyle at the time. It was a beautiful day so we decided to take full advantage by shooting the images at Arabia_Mountain, a knob hill that rests in the outskirts of metro Atlanta. KireiNa’s hair stylist, Nia, was proud of her work and wanted to creat...

pgp309: The importance of oral traditions

Perhaps no other method of engendering mystical teachings to future generations is as old as the ORAL TRADITION. The continent of Africa has a plethora of cultures and tribes which still pass along supreme wisdoms by virtue of a GRIOT (African Story-teller) or TRIBAL WISDOM-KEEPER. The Ancient Kemetic culture of Africa was no different and one term used to distinguish a person who bore the great r...
