The Dream

A fashion collaboration with talented photographer Danil Golovkin for Eclectic Society magazine. The central theme of the project was based on Henri Rousseau’s famous surrealist painting ‘The Dream’. I wanted to create an otherworldly effect here using a black background, surreal vegetation and deformed animal parts that initially look real, but – after some inspection – are revealed to be more surrealistic. As with Rousseau’s painting, symbolism is very important here, every shape can be interpreted differently.

Racially based dating preferences are not made in a vacuum and I’m really tired of hearing that excuse

Because I have yet to hear an explanation about why someone doesn’t date a poc group that didn’t involve an extremely racist ass stereotype embedded in white supremacy and fetishism

Dating preferences are influenced by the white supremacist society we live in. When you are exposed to light, bright and white all your damn life, that shit is internalized.
