Style, Expression and Communities of Color

Fashion photographer, Bill Cunningham once said “The wider world perceives fashion as frivolity that should be done away with. The point is that fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life. I don’t think you can do away with it. It would be like doing away with civilization.” People often assume that paying extra attention to style and presentation is nothing more than a shallow obsession with appearance, but this couldn’t be further from the truth, especially for communities of color.

Tata Harper’s Vermont Farm

There is a man named Jon who works on Tata Harper‘s farm in her “batch room.” Jon and I (independently) fell and shattered our right wrists on the exact same week last June. We both had the same surgery, with titanium screwed into our bone, in the same place. The only difference is that one of us barely has a trace of a scar while the other’s is a dark brown stripe that turns purple in the sun.

Merging Motorcycles & Meditation

Among my friends and family, I’m not really known for my driving skills. In fact, I’m known for my lack of driving skills. For example, I posted a photo of myself in a motorcycle helmet on Instagram recently (I was riding on the back) and my friend commented, “I need an insurance policy just looking at this.” Let’s just say, he’s not wrong.
