Shout out to all the POC who’ve ever been made to feel as if they’re being a bad representation of their race just because they enjoy “stereotypical” activities racists expect them to enjoy.

And fuck off to all the POC who’ve ever made their brothers and sisters feel that way.

The only person “holding back the race” are those who think the feelings of racists should in anyway dictate the actions of POC.

Baaaaaaaaaad!

I think a huge mistake we make is not allowing ourselves to feel. Whenever I’m driving in my car and a memory pops into my head that forms a lump in my throat my first instinct is to immediately shut it away. But I try to force myself to feel it, the loss. I let myself cry and slam my fists into the steering wheel because I know my mind needs my body. Sometimes the spaces in our head aren’t big enough for the pain we feel and it’s our bodies job to set it free.

Snippets of finally living back home after 9 years. Captured among family and friends between Lagos, Aba and Umuahia. There’s the heat, the traffic and no electricity, but all that fades for the better moments- Yagazie Emezi

LIFE AS I SEE IT
SOLO SHOW ONE NIGHT IN BROOKLYN BROOKLYN FIREPROOF EAST 119 INGRAHAM ST. BKMAY 3RD, 2014 7PM-11PM
*WOW. that’s what comes to mind when i think about today and all that has happened in my 28 years of life. what i’m most excited about is seeing growth in my photographic journey. photography is an obsession of mine that i thank god for everyday. it’s something that I never saw coming and now it’s something i never see ending. for me, it’s all about letting go and just being. living in the now and letting life guide me to my next frame. it feels natural to operate like this, and that’s important to me because i’m attempting to make images in the most pure form possible. on this 28th year of mine i just want to say thank you! thanks for all the support, emails, messages, and shout-outs. I really do appreciate it all. If you’re in Brooklyn on May 3rd, come out to my solo show! I’m really excited to present my new work, you won’t want to miss this!
