Pangea’s Lookbook: Doo Wop street style

Pangea’s Lookbook: Doo Wop street style

Sany Lirianon styled and captured for ELLE Indonesia. Doo Wop is the theme, having a touch of throwback with an afrocentric sass. There was not much prose with these images. Just the images which speak whole libraries on beauty and fierceness… Did you know that Our Beauty belongs EVERYWHERE. Starring Sany Liriano Lensed by Stefan Giftthaler Styled by Marzia Fossati @missmarzia on IG Make up ...

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 ...

pgp386: Thirty minutes with TAJ

When it comes to my definition of a woman of authentic afrosensual beauty, I think of TAJ. I met her several years ago, right after we’d change the original Pangaea blog to the website. I was attending a Black August event hosted by revolutionary Kalonji Changa and she stepped to the stage. I knew nothing of this beautiful woman with the butterfly tattooed across her chest but there was something ...

LuvJonez… an afrosocial at the Apache Cafe

LuvJonez… an afrosocial at the Apache Cafe

It about that hunger that needs to be fed; that thirst that needs to be quenched. LuvJonez. At the Apache, the light low and colorful, casting shadow that, accompanied by music and verse, paid homage to that sense of passionate longing on a cold Monday night. Spoken word artist TinaATL stepped up to two stages last Monday, acting as muse to artists/photographers and sharing verse to creatives and ...

PrincessYEME… a soul music interlude

PrincessYEME… a soul music interlude

It’s just a moment. As the morning clouds hang heavy, threatening to spill their tears, YEME lounged lazily amongst the old vinyl covers, reminiscing over tunes recorded before she was born. Diffused luminescence fought it way from the stars through the cumulus blanket overhead just to touch her. But she was oblivious. Perhaps the young earthSista was lost in vintage melodies straining to be...

pgp374: a taste of Apache…

While all of our features are for everyone, this one is a special note for the artists and photographers who partake in the experiences we have every 2nd Monday (tonight!) at the Apache Cafe in Atlanta. There’s an ambiance in the place; a play of light and shadow that works with the location’s decor to create truly unique backdrops for potentially extraordinary images. Because of the l...

pgp370: TAJ in an Apache interlude

You only are free when you realize you belong no place — you belong every place — no place at all. The price is high. The reward is great. ~Maya Angelou For me, the day leading up to Pangea’s night at the Apache Cafe was a tense one. It typically is; bringing together the earthSistas, getting everything together, letting everyone know that what’s going and not knowing, until you are in...

Sekhmet… Newport100s

Sekhmet… Newport100s

Kicking back in a creatively deconstructed pick-truck, earthSista Sekhmet (formerly known as BelaMenina) drew longs drags on her Newport100s. Dressed in nothing more than an old, worn button-down man’s shirt and a pair of knee-high boots, the nubian posed contemplatively. She was unabashed and atypically unadorned. Soft pre-rain clouds diffused the sun rays as they danced politely on this earthSis...
