35mm Portraits [pt 2]

Check out my other 35mm portrait post here

The first two photos use a Gary Fong light in my apartment. 

The third to last photo is of nerdsnyarn

The last photo, of me, was taken by the talented Grady Mitchell. He’s the only person I know (not on the internet) who succeeds at taking centered portraits. For the most part, you’ll want to remember the rule of thirds for where you put the subject (particularly their eyes). Rarely does a dead-centre face look as good as it could. 

Grady does a lot of medium format film work these days, which we haven’t really started covering here. Besides being a good photographer, he’s a great writer. Check out his tumblr here

Sensitive Black boys fall through the cracks

we dont speak about pain because thats not what any wants to hear. 

they want machismo. they want sports. they want fatherhood. they want bills paid..they want strength where there isnt any. 

when a black boy stares at the ground something GOT em! some emotion done come and grabbed hold of him..

“whats wrong?” they ask. 

Like he would tell them, everybody betrays their trust..everybody forsakes them. Crushed little black boys cant dance. cant swim. cant play..so they rob and steal. they sit on buses glancing out the window trying to keep pain down..

crushed little black boys DONT NEED FATHERS! THEY NEED LOVE, HUGS KISSES. REMINDERS THAT THEIR SELF WORTH AINT NOWHERE NEAR THEIR GENITALS.THEY NEED ENCOURAGEMENT. THEY NEED….THEY ARE NEEDY.. 

sensitive black boys dont exist because we turn them into monsters and then ask why theyre in pain.

Damn.

if the guy who got shot was white none of you would give a fuck tho

people who look like you and me don’t get targeted by the police, people who look like you and me don’t get shot in the street by the people who are paid to protect us, people who look like me and you shoot up schools and get called “misunderstood” by the mainstream media. that’s the point
