As the threat of rain loomed, yesterday, over the outskirts of Atlanta, a handful of us struck out to the river, inspired by Juneteenth, to create an homage to the day that freedom became possible…
This is a sampling of the images we were inspired to create in the midst of the light showers falling on us on a cloudy day by in the river
Juneteenth proves that we have the power to change the paradigm. With that awareness we need to carry on as the legacies of those who came before us; we must continue breaking chains and removing the barriers that deny us justice and liberation.
Yesterday, the earthSistas and earthBrothas went to the river to honor, through creation, those who endured for us. Allow your empowerment to be your healing and let emancipation be your inspiration. Again this is only a sampling of what we did. Click on this sentence to see the full premium collection. You can also click on the banner below.

EarthSistas in nature; what could be better inspiration? Momentary strolls that were reflective, imaginative, provocative and creative leading to some revealing moments in which beauty both inside and out are exposed. And with this exposure… through this unveiling… there is a serenity. There is a euphoric communion with nature that is liberating. And whether she’s a country girl or urbanista, all of the earthSistas seem to find a moment of peace that, like their beauty, is inside and out.
The Afrosensual Aesthetic is the GardenVoice that pushes the limits and deepens the perspective. It is still be done from a position of respect, pride and joy, but here we will be able to explore themes that don’t quite fit within the earthSista box. Its is a place for the sensual lovermakers and the premium cultivators. Check it out and share your thoughts and ideas and passions.
