over the next few days I’m going to be sharing a project I did with @ntwrkarea3 in 2018. This was my first project working with a brand. Everything before was passion projects created with friends. I was fucking nervous and shaking when I arrived on set (I still get very nervous for sets btw! Imposter syndrome is real). I only had 20mins with DJ Lag out of all the hours on set. I had borrowed a fancy digital camera and flash, and to my luck, everything decided to stop working, ahahaha. My first job, and I felt like I had fucked up. I grabbed all my analogue cameras and my shoe box (I always take a shoe box to set filled with paper and kokis and pens 😂). You can connect dots in retrospect and when I think of this project I feel so fucking grateful because it’s where I got to meet @outof0ffice_ @martinmagner and @xzavierzulu - all who have become mentors and friends, and humans I look up to for all they are doing in this industry. I’ll also never forget running around a recycling factory dodging pigeon shit and laughing hysterically with DG Lag. #polaroid #adidas #adidasza #djlag

@laurenandlara for @adidasza womxn’s store! // Bless the gods for bringing stop frame animation, scrap book, diary-esque techniques and aesthetics back into the ‘mainstream’! 😃 For as long as I remember, I’ve been making colorful messes. My mom was a single mom, and I remember her bringing me to work when I was very small, and putting me under her desk with pens and paper to occupy myself. I never stopped I guess! For those who went to high school with me and who follow me here, you’ll know that all I did was live in the school art room obsessively adding to my visual diaries, creating pages of mess and little animations. I was an introvert and found it easier to express myself through art, getting lost in those worlds for hours on end.

Last month I got to work on one of the most special projects I have ever worked on - this is just a tiny snippet of that: Manila Von Teez x Levi’s Pride. @manilavonteez thank you for allowing us into your life, and for sharing your story with all of us. @barryreid76 thank you for all the work that you do in ensuring that queer narratives do not get exploited and pink washed by brands, but instead remain in the hands and control of queer individuals themselves. @andpeople , thank you for trusting me with this, and for all the work you do in pushing for stories that deserve to be told and heard (and told in the most sensitive and ethical ways). And to the entire team who put so many hours of work and love into this, I am so grateful for you - seriously, if you're looking for a D.O.P, sound designer and editor, @jasonprins36 @luisluis93 and @tomas_wells are your people (they're not only experts at their craft but they're incredibly sensitive and go above and beyond on all of their productions) . . . .

A project by @iamtazme & @alokvmenon ❤️ (Love and appreciate you both) // Tazmé will be uploading chapters of a written piece on their Instagram profile. Chapter 1 goes as follows: I walked into @alokvmenon AirBnB with a bag of saris and no actual plan. We knew one thing; within 3hrs we would have a set of photos that spoke towards the amalgamation of our desi roots and the lived experience of our queerness. How we'd get there was a total mystery. "Girl, do you even know how to tie one of these things?", they asked me. "I think so," I replied. Memories of my grandmother steadfast in front of her little mirror, meters of adorned fabric sliding through her nimble fingers, the smell of crushed Indian silk and the soft chimes of beaded jewelry. This was something inherent, a history coded into my being. A history (rather, herstory) that I was only ever allowed to experience from a distance, no matter how matter how much I felt it belonged to me and I to it. Included in my cultural experience but excluded from the practice of my culture as prescribed to me on the basis of gender. I open up the bag, begin pulling out reams of fabric. Alok chooses their favourite, "Stand there", I command. I begin draping their body, dressing them as I imagined my grandmother would. With this, came a sense of giddy excitement and something between nostalgia and liberation. I was never taught how to do this. Tying sarees was a tradition not destined to be passed onto me; a boy. Yet one I felt destined to learn, to master. Tucking and pleating as best as I could, the question of why my culture has two distinct histories intended to be inherited by two very separate genders burned away at me to the point of frustration. Why was this iconic cultural practice not made accessible to all of us, why did my gender exclude me from something I am so innately drawn towards? My gender, of course, is the answer...

When I first met Hannah, she knew my star sign and my exact birth date. She was playing an obscure song in her room and asked if it was ok and I was surprised at the question because I really loved it. You have a third eye on your forehead. I feel soothed and nostalgic in your presence, as if I’ve met your being before. Kindred. These images (“Little Miss Know It All”) are from a very special project conceptualized by Hannah. In her own words: “I recently got together with @meghan.daniels, to exhume different coping mechanisms I use to strengthen my identity. As someone committed to psychoanalysis, the sexualisation of these different mechanisms might seem narcissistic and promiscuous, an Electra-complex, as the old bastards would say. There is so much I was conditioned to dislike about myself from a young age and the shame for my self pleasing rights at the centre of this fragmentation. Taken from the revolutionary writing ANTI-OEDIPUS by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari with support by Michel Focoult; ANTI-ELECTRA is the practice of breaking away from these imposed psychopathological dynamics. Navigating all reduced aspects of the female psyche and igniting it with sexual ownership is my very nervously assumed responsibility and courageous duty to myself. 🔫” #35mm #film
