Raine’s Nature Part 2: The Lake

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...

pgp400: Raine’s nature part 1 – the drum

The breeze was light but it was there. Like a rare whisper, it was just a hint on a hot summer day. Adornment artist Zeus DeShaman joined earthSista Raine for a leisurely stroll in Pangea’s secret garden. The day was pleasant and perfect for a playful serenade between the two of them. A breeze whispered while Raine laughingly played and posed with the drum Zeus brought. And yet with all of t...

pgp394: 30 minutes in the Garden with Chanel.Black

Chanel.Black – epic, afrosensual & fierce  She spent her 30 Minutes in the Garden styled as though she was stepping out of the Matrix and into a tutu. And she was creatively fierce the whole time. Creative fierceness. That describes her style to a tee. In the backyard of Atlanta’s Goat Farm, she strode defiantly against the deconstructed backdrop with a supremely cool attitude that could...

Raine… beauty adorned by a god

Raine… beauty adorned by a god

Soft spoken and melodic, Raine patiently conversed with the man named after a god. When ZEUS DeSHAMAN, a that purveyor of terrestrial and celestial arts met the earthSista of the storm, he was creatively sprung. The talented craftsman of metal and stone jewelry couldn’t wait to see the earthSista RAINE adorned in his creations and nothing else.Strong lights cascade on rocks, flesh, copper an...

A smoking afrodesiac…

A smoking afrodesiac…

This was an unplanned night. Jewelry designer, Zeus DeShaman and I were hanging out at a photography studio at The Goat Farm Arts Center during one of Pangea’s Studio Days; a day each month that we set aside to create images to support the Cultivators of the Garden, of which Zeus is one. We were joined by earthSista RaineTheMuse and spoken word artist TinaATL. The women were there to create ...

RavenDesdemona… simply natural

RavenDesdemona… simply natural

It’s hard for me to keep it real and simple sometimes. Especially when I am dealing with what moves me to create the images I do… but first things first… earthSista RavenDesdemona had been patiently waiting for her opportunity to create an image set for the ongoing Nature Stroll Series. But when she moved to her (then) new home whose yard opened out to an open nature area the eager sista found she...

pgp344: 30 minutes in the Garden with RavenDesdemona

With her dark, smoky eyes and elaborate body art, RavenDesdemona, definitely  did not strike me as what one would call stereotypically afrocentric. And, maybe, that’s the point, right? The Goat Farm was not an unusual location for either of us. I’d had created many captures there for the Garden and she had shot with photographer, Bobby Williams on several occasions herself. But they...

Chadoe… the green wall interlude

Chadoe… the green wall interlude

Reflected light shimmered across earthSista Chadoe‘s beautiful dark skin casting dramatic shadows against the green wood of the long abandoned country club for an old overgrown, forgotten golf course. The location sat next to the beautiful lake where the young goddess had posed for her images for Pangea’s Nature Stroll Series. After that photoshoot we decided to check out the surroundi...

FlowerChild… beauty by the lake

FlowerChild… beauty by the lake

Typically, earthSista FlowerChild is joined by earthSista GreenRose in her sets for the Garden but on one occasion she decided to stroll alone. It was a sunny day, with a bright blue sky decorated with puffy clouds; perfect for creating images for Pangea’s Nature Stroll Series. Typically, she is playful to the point of goofiness but on this day there was something different that stood out ab...
