"you are crying
and the angels sit
comforting God
telling him to stop
feeling so pained
“where does it hurt?” they ask,
he points to you."
"

forgive me father,
but sometimes my God
is a woman
sitting on the kitchen floor
her hands holding her legs
screaming for help
without making a sound

forgive me father
but sometimes my God
is a woman
calling me on the phone
begging me to call her
“beautiful”
because her lover forced
ugliness into her soul

forgive me father,
but sometimes my God
is a woman
crying in the shower
begging for another God
to lift her burden.

This. This is how you break down ableist barriers. This is incredible for the deaf and for the custies. I would love to learn sign language, and I would learn it faster if it was standing between me and booze

this is so important

Identity and discovery–at both the collective and personal levels–are themes in the forefront of Omar Victor Diop’s Project Diaspora. A journey through time, the photographic series delves into and exposes less spoken narratives of the role of Africans out of Africa.

With this body of work, Diop challenges us to rethink our own ideas of history and gives answer to his ongoing, internal dialogue of who he is as artist and person.

Starting his research during a four month residency in Màlaga, Spain, where he was immersed in the reality of being a stranger, Diop has focused this first installment on Europe during the 15th through 19th centuries. Inspired by the many baroque artworks created during this time, he considers this period as an awakening of an intense (and previously nonexistent) era of interaction between Africa and the rest of the world. Using portraits of notable Africans in European history as his inspiration, Diop pits their life-journeys and legacies with those of his own, and further defining his intrigue of the singular destinies of travellers and those in alien environments.  (keep reading)

ABOUT
I have been carved out to resemble your imperfections..
I love films, i love reading, I like to draw, I love writing (Haruki Murakami is the word), I love pulling off pranks and most of all I love tragedy and drama.
Coconuts, grapes and bananas are the best things in this world. I hope we can get along,
I do float like a butterfly but I am likely to sting like a bee...
