Alphabet Lifestyle Faces of the World Photograph

With so much ignorance and anger in the world today, we want to take a moment to appreciate & celebrate cultural diversity and our own individual uniqueness, heritage and journey through life. In the words of Michelle Obama “When they go low…we go high”

Steve McCurry for Valentino Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

We were all mesmerised by US photographer Steve McCurry’s iconic image ‘Afghan Girl’ for National Geographic, so when we heard that he’d recently shot the 2016 Spring/Summer Valentino collection, we couldn’t wait to see the results. McCurry shot the African inspired collection in a Maasai village between Kenya and Tanzania, and as expected, the results are spectacular.

McCurry is renowned as a prestigious culture photographer, not a fashion photographer and as such he has majestically captured fashion and beauty and its interaction with the African culture.

Simply stunning! X

……And all that jazz!


“The real power of Jazz is that a group of people can come together and create improvised art and negotiate their agendas… and that negotiation is the art”

– Wynton Marsalis from ‘Jazz, a film by Ken Burns.’
