This is (going to be) an individual collection of mostly contemporary art, photography, fashion etc. made by artists of Africa and the African Diaspora.
I do not own any of the photos, videos, etc. posted on my blog unless stated otherwise. I apologize if proper credit was not given, message me & I’ll change it.
