It was a lovers night.
Most nights at Pangea’s Afrosocial are lovers nights.

Artisans Honi Montique and Maharajah Moor were in attendance, adorning Pangea’s MUSES in creations of their making on that cool night in October a few years ago. Artists and photographers created inspired images. Couples were entertained in the background by the antics on stage and on the models’ podium as they imbibed fine drinks and consumed delicious entrees. It was intoxicating evening of organized chaos filled with moments of color and sensuality and love. I sought to capture a couple of those moments with Honi and Maharajah.

There is so much love in the adornments they create. Enriched and inspired by the culture that is their shared heritage, they are artisans of some of the Finest Copper, Brass and Silver Wire Wrapped Jewelry around. And on this night… that culture… that heritage… their creations… their love all are celebrated.

This interlude is a collection of inspired captures of the love that is, uniquely, their own.

An Interlude in Pangea’s Garden is a momentary collection of casual captures. They are informal and open and sometimes intimate. Interludes can be spontaneous; they can be exploratory. An Interlude can be an icebreaker, where photographer and muse get to know each other. As lovers of Pangea’s Afrosocial, Honi and Mahrajah decided to participate behind the scenes by adorning earthSista Alluris at her first Afrosocial. Vincent, inspired by the chemistry they share, asked if he could create a few captures of them and they agreed.


Live Your Garden Life.

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.


What is your Afrosensual Portrait? Were you feeling cute one day, on your way out the door…or just getting out of the shower…so you break out the camera and snap away…No one around to make you feel like you have to pose this way or that way… So you just do you and snap away… Well, show us how you see yourself in your camera… The UdoU Series focuses on how Sistas see themselves; creating captures of their own Afrocentric beauty and sensuality. We invite you to participate by using your own SLR camera or your Point-and-Shoot Kodak, even your camera phone. We want you to capture you.
