Although Thursday’s are about my photography, I fell upon this fashion editorial to cotton: in the field, on one of my favorite local sites, Facon Magazine! This beautiful art expression by Harley Morgan is a must see. I believe photos should tell a story. I believe photography is a visual medium to express emotions. This editorial evoked anger, pride, happiness and just bitterness from me. All in one. That is beautiful. That is the art of photography.
I won’t write a lot because this is about the images.
From the Facon Magazine feature: “In the Field” is a fashion editorial paying homage to our African ancestors. It’s creative direction is meant to evoke controversy, emotion and pride. These are characteristics that our African ancestors exhibited through all of their trials and tribulations. Like these ancestors, denim is a timeless garment. In the midst of much wear and tear, it still remains intact. #COTTON has taken us through HELL & HIGH WATER. African Americans owe our resilience, strength and ingenuity to the struggle.
