What’s the difference?” I asked him. “Between the love of your life, and your soulmate?”

Can you please…

Meditate with me.
Pray with me.
Teach me yoga.
Exposes me to new music.
Inspire me.
Give me massages.
Take baths with me.
Binge watch Netflix with me.
Share your writings with me.
Listen to my Pro-Black rants.
Stay up with me when I study.
Make me coffee for my all nighters if you’re not bout that staying up life.
Rub my booty & play in my hair.
Love my dark chocolate skin, kinky hair, & the few extra pounds I carry.

Test Shots by Rog Walker.

Test Shots is an ongoing series of portraits taken in the studio with photography couple Rog and Bee Walker. Each photograph, taken mostly of their close friends and fellow creatives, is as striking as it is simple.

Opting for a sombre and dark background, coupled with poised and pensive subjects, Walker’s shots manage to maximize on the simplicity of the traditional portrait style by making use of a medium format camera that provides an image quality which, despite the powerful stillness of each individual, vividly brings the details of each photograph to life. This brings out both a sense of strength and vulnerability in each picture, alluding to the intimate two-way dialog between subject and photographer.

"This is the most organic method of communication I have. Photography is the way I speak…It doesn’t get more personal than another human, and that’s what I’m looking to capture, that connection between humanity." - Rog Walker

I’ve really been thinking about what to say in the post cause the pictures i took of Durban on my ‘ol cracked iphone do it no justice- AT ALL.

My first visit to South Africa ( and any other african country outside of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire) was amazing. I was in Durban to attend the 35th annual Durban International Film Festival (DIFF).

Durban was beautiful. Driving from the airport I compared it to many cities but it’s its own gem. Beaches, skate parks, friendly people, greenery/parks ( take a hint Accra!) Spices. Spices. Spices my people!! I love spices. sigh

DIFF itself was an eclectic mix of filmmakers and enthusiasts from around the continent and the world. There are some amazing movies and documentaries made on and about the continent that I wish were more widespread.

Durban, you are a winner.
