Trip to Uganda -Part Two- “On the road” April/14 #Uganda #Africa #Travel #Photography

There are special places on the earth that look as though they’re as mesmerising and virgin and the day God made them. Uganda, much like the people (relatively) has an inherent beauty that shines brightly, even through its no frills demeanor.

And before you judge me, I’m not saying that because I’m Ugandan ;-)

Latest from Uganda: “On the road”- Part One- April/14

Last Monday I came back from a short spell in Uganda, my birthplace, my home and my heart.

The older I get the more frequently I’ve been going back, and with every visit is more precious than the last. With the majority of my family based in Kampala (the capital), and my ancestral village in Mbarara (South West). Most of my images are snaps between the two.

PEG LEG TROUSERS: Style Inspiration

Peg leg trousers

Style Alien, NY: http://www.thestylealien.com/2013/11/sweet-escape.html

PEG LEG TROUSERS

Work a clean silhouette this season with the peg- leg trouser. As high-waist paperbag styles present a feminine take on the look, low slung belted trousers offer an androgynous approach. Channel a fresh, sporty vibe with track-pant-inspired styles in bold brights and statement prints.

Tuuli by Dar: an artistic journey into the heart of the feminine

b92e88997e347a9a767ae9937ac56d71

Tonight, I’m heading down to Rankin HQ, to get set my eyes upon Johny Dar’s special preview of ‘Tuuli by Dar’; a series of unique and beautiful images, inspired by the art series ‘DAR THE BOOK’, an artistic journey into the heart of the feminine.

I loathe my use of the word fan, but I am, admittedly, a huge fan of Hunger Magazine, and Rankin Photography, so needless to say, I’m eager to see the art that awaits me.

Last week I was invited to the series of short screenings by Rankin Film Production and The Full Service, showcasing six short films, one of which was The EXCHANGE, for Louis Vuitton, a coy and seductive tale of courtship, filmed at the Hotel Café Royal.  All six of the short films shown succeeded in their efforts to captivate and around curiosity. This is why I rate Rankin. They continue to push the boundaries of art, beauty and photography through creative collaborations, with a mixture of visionary designers.

‘Tuuli by Dar’ will be crafted into a limited edition calendar and created specifically with Tuuli in mind, weaving across her bare skin, exploring the beauty of the female form as Rankin’s lens beautifully captures Johny’s original artwork.

As of today, ‘Tuuli by DAR’ will be published by Rankin Photography and distributed by Turnaround Publisher Services, and available for viewing at ANNROY, Rankin’s London Gallery.

I’ll likely be ‘graming’ tonight, so if you don’t follow me already on instagram it’s @afroblush.
