As I watched this lovely cloud of curly hair sway in the wind I couldn’t help but ask for a photo of her. You can I obviously caught her off gaurd, but that’s what I like about the photos I take.
I have never really taken notice to it but it was recently brought to my attention that I am becoming a prominent figure within the Black/African American Fashion Community within Los Angeles. I myself have never been a apart of a community where I felt welcomed as a black kid within the Black community, so to be accepted now is still very strange to me. It’s not a bad thing nor am I complaining, it’s just feels strange how it all randomly happened so quick. I’d like to think I’m doing something right but at the same time I wonder if it’s just because of social media?
Over the course of me photographing styles on the street on DTLA, those who have stood out the most have been young Black individuals who have their own creative view on fashion. I am always available to shoot any independent fashion events or even shows for those like minded individuals who wants a different view on things. But in the meantime here are some of my favorite looks I’ve seen on the streets.
PS I love all of you beautiful people and I wish to work with more of my beautiful black and brown people.
