A diptych of new work I shot for my series of Antigua, now renamed to The Portrait of the Sun. Taking a step back in realizing I was all over the place when I photographed last year, so I took a more minimal approach; viewing them as if they were paintings more so than photographs, and represent a entirely new shift in my work. These pictures are my “paintings” that I present to you of my heritage and culture. Check it out on my site. Link is in my bio. 🇦🇬
Artist @nickiminaj is on the cover of @tmagazine where she was interviewed by feminist author Roxane Gay. Whether you're a fan or not, her undeniable barrier-breaking success in music is impressive. She spoke about having to go above and beyond to prove herself as a female rapper. "No matter how many times I get on a track with everyone's favorite M.C. and hold my own, the culture never seems to want to give me props as an M.C., as a lyricist, as a writer. I got to prove myself a hundred times whereas the guys that came in around the same time as I did, they were given the titles so much quicker without anybody second-guessing." 🎤🎧#nickiminaj#rapper#hiphop#artist#instagood#musician#tmagazine#newyorktimes
TASTEY TUESDAY! #Whatsnew - Nicki Minaj's New Album Is About Being "Truly, Genuinely Happy"
Nicki Minaj’s name has been ringing in 2017. Even without releasing a new album yet, the Queens rap empress broke Aretha Franklin’s record for female with the most entries on the Billboard Hot 100.
As if that weren’t enough, the 34-year-old is gearing up to drop her long-anticipated follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint. The hype around Minaj is to the point that even The New York Times’ T Magazine wanted to get her take on what the record is about. “I know what this album is gonna mean to my fans. This album is everything in my life coming full circle and me being truly, genuinely happy. It feels almost like a celebration,” she said. “The last album, The Pinkprint, was almost like my diary, closing the chapter on certain things and not knowing if I was happy or sad about beginning new chapters.” “I was really writing about feeling unsure. Now, I can tell you guys what happened for the last two years of my life. I know who I am. I am getting Nicki Minaj figured out with this album and I’m loving her.” check out the full T Magazine interview here.

I love this new video series we're launching today. In "Read T a Poem," @tmagazine asks actors we love to read us verse by a contemporary poet. First up: T Great #AmyAdams reading "Why I Wake Early" (2004), by Mary Oliver, from DEVOTIONS: THE SELECTED POEMS OF MARY OLIVER (@penguinpress). Turn on the sound, obviously.
