“I am just a woman, simply making the world beautiful. Nudity has been something as taboo and only meant for your “soul mate”. However my idea of nudity is purity and something that can be shared beautifully and poetically. I have debated about releasing these set of pictures, my blossoming sexuality caught on camera.  I look back and wonder about what I was thinking at the time and I rememb...

SHE is the Universe…

SHE is the Universe…

Stars are my children as I give birth to galaxies. I wrap myself in nebulas like blankets and jam to the music of cosmic winds. My heart is the beat of pulsars and my rage, my rapture, my orgasms are all supernovas. My very existence is surreal. I am awesome and terrifying. And my beauty is the original and the universal. LOL… I am ego-tripping right now. But wouldn’t you if you were me? This is t...

pgp408: in that window down the hall

We took a moment. In the midst of working on images for a forthcoming feature and the promo images for our AfroSocial event in Atlanta, I had the fortune to see earthSista Phoenyx stand by the window in the studio down the hall in between sets… and I was inspired. Lightly draped in gold leaf pain, lovingly applied by the artist Ashaunti, her beautiful figure was delicately accentuated in silhouett...

Raine’s Nature Part 2: The Lake

Last Sunday we returned to the lake. It was our annual Fall Nature Stroll where the earthSistas and earthBrothas host a group of photographers and cultivators on an excursion through nature. The Cultivators are the purveyors of the “culture that cultivates an Afrosensual Aesthetic.” It was such an inspired morning that it led to reflections of moments on another Nature Stroll… Zeus DaShaman is Cul...

pgp399: Chantrelle Lenoir… an interlude with an artist in her space

“I have been painting for a little over a year now. I didn’t go to an art school or have any formal skill trainings. I have always sketched, but never because I wanted to, only because I knew how. The moment I picked up a paint brush I felt so liberated. I was able to say everything I had always wanted to, but kept bottled up for so long. I decided that this is what I wanted to do for ...

Nambi blue… an Apache Interlude

Nambi blue… an Apache Interlude

Pangea’s recent experiences at the Apache Cafe have been fortuitous. And as we prepare for this evening’s events I decided to revisit the Garden’s first night at the Bohemian Circus. It was chaotic. All of the plans for the night went out the window. And it was sensual. It was beautiful. These are a handful of the images we did not share of that night and although they are a part...

Warning: If your butt isn’t big, you may not be Black

Warning: If your butt isn’t big, you may not be Black

By Shannon T. Boodram of Sway Magazine Until recently, wide hips, thick lips and solid derrieres, common among many Black women, were passed over and deemed unworthy of even an honourable mention in the working definition of beauty. But this year, Allure magazine announced there has been a milestone victory in the uphill battle versus beauty standards: no longer does mainstream media call for its ...
