Welcome to the Humble Ranch

Last week, I hosted my first official [housewarming] party of the year at my new home, the Humble Ranch. So many of my family & friends came out to celebrate this awesome life event with me.

It was a simple affair complete with excellent texture, color, design, drink, & food mixed with African flair.

Everybody knows that I'm all about a fun party flyer so for this occasion I decided to use a few vignettes from my home as a background to spread the word. With many of my friends not seeing my home before the party, the flyers offered a sneak peek into my life & design esthetic.

As you can see, the set was 4-8pm but things lasted much longer & it was all good. People love a good party, including me!

I'm so appreciative of the wonderful people that I have in my life, they really showed your boy some tremendous love!

I've been in my new home now for almost 4 months and it's honestly THE best home that I've ever lived as an adult for so many reasons.

As a matter of fact: The top image was taken with my Nikon DSLR, the last two were taken with my iPhone 6.

U Street Afro Fashion

This past weekend, I was in DC visiting friends and then this happened... a street fashion show put on by Malindi Designs at Zawadi Gallery. I was excited by the African style prints and decided to pull out my iPhone to capture some of this goodness. Not only did I do photo but I got into more slow motion video. The video actually happened by accident but I happen to really like the results. Edited with iMovie. Edited with iMovie & Replay. Can't decide which one I like best.

Love my new burlap hat! A woman made me laugh the other day when she complimented me on the Stef-N-Ty creation. "What a cool hat, looks like it has wings." I guess it kinda does.

Road Tripping

Cousin Dee & I took a quick little road trip to NYC this past weekend for a needed break and to attend José Vilson's, "This Is Not A Test" book launch. The trip was hype. Ate at some of my favorite spots, discovered some new spots, kicked it with great people, took a lot of damn pictures. Best of all, I was able to check out the Carrie Mae Weems exhibit at the Guggenheim and the Black Eye pop up exhibit in TriBeCa, where I had a very unique interchange with the exhibit's curator, the beautiful, Nicola Vassell.   Interestingly enough, Carrie Mae Weems and Black Eye contributor Rashid Johnson have given me inspiration to do a series of introspective photos of myself that will most likely be centered around my body, my vulnerability intersected with cultural identity to share a narrative that will hopefully push me further as an artist. We'll see how this plays out…

Take Me To The Game

Opening Day for the Detroit Tigers is certainly a grand Detroit holiday! Tailgaters everywhere! Debauchery everywhere! Chaos everywhere! People doing way too much everywhere! I had a great time celebrating the opening of the season with my boo, my friends, and a whole host of randoms in my orange fashion sweater that they all love to hate. For some reason, I felt like I was Ferris Bueller, minus the car situation & the sister with the scorching case of herpes. It was all good! Pictured above is Detroit Tiger, Austin Jackson. A great player and a great person all the way around! Here's to a great season!

Spending the remainder of my year in Paris to end 2013 & begin 2014 on a continued wave of positivity & creative energy. At the end of 2012, I proclaimed that 2013 was going to be the year of my comeback and it was in so many ways. I'm not sure what I expect from 2014 but I hope it is filled with the same spirit of 2013: Family, Friends, & Love! No need for (Re)Solutions  here. Happy New Year people!

Man of Summer

While hunting for new soul house songs on Traxsource this past spring, I stumbled upon "Man of Summer" by QB Smith and was instantly hooked. I played the song on auto play  & repeat for hours and adopted it as my 2013 summer theme song. Ever mutha needs a summer theme song! The lyrics hit me in the right spot and reminded me of summer love and a connection to the earth and all things connected to light. I, Tafari.... am a man of summer!
"I am fleeting thunder on a blue horizon nearby laughter on an outstretched evenin' I am a warm touch all over your body and shady branches for your shelter Im a thoughtful moment scorched emotions cool remembrance springs conclusion Im everything Ive ever done and ever seen and ever felt and Im ready yes Im ready To be the man you want I am summer Man of summer"

You may know Butta from her award winning blog, Soulbouce (my favorite sources for new music) where she grinds hard as the Editor-In-Chief!

After my time at New York Fashion Week last February I decided to sit the fall season out New York Fashion Week out. Crazy right??? Although I will not be in & out of fashion related events photographing beautiful people, I did have some thoughts on fashion week that I shared with Sharifa D. Crawford of Disciples of Haute. Check it out here! And for the record, I'm never that excited about spring/summer collections. Being from the Midwest & a lover of all things autumn, I'm more excited about fall/winter collections. The colors, jackets, richer textiles and scarves of course.

My little Mamiya is pretty unpredictable and it seems to have a mind of its own more often than not. After the first few rolls of film and some advice (way back when...), I decided that it was better to get multiple photos of my subject just in case. These two photos illustrate how I may get something totally useable and something a little interesting and or fun. The image below has the same affect as one of my favorite shots from the series seen here. This brown beauty was captured after leaving Korto Momolu's 2012 F/W fashion presentation at The Bryant Park Hotel. It was a fun event with lots of great people watching and flowing cocktails....

I always go for the window seat so that I can take photos like these and daydream.
