Men with Identity Documents every black South African had to carry, 1972

--- @maisonetobjet is a significant trade fair which held biannually in Parc des Expositions de Villepinte, Paris, France. It is an international benchmark event for decoration, design, and lifestyle sector. It has been considered as one of the most important European events on interior design.
Coming a long way home from the vibrant archipelago, Indonesia finally made its way to exhibit the best handmade contemporary design on this year's edition.
Highly anticipate the event yet haven't been able to come to @maisonetobjet?
Say no more, just see the glimpse above!
Indonesia's "tropical living"-themed pavilion and the showcased products garnered widespread rave reviews from a lot of @maisonetobjet visitors. The ecstatic reviews come from strict curatorial process and hours of designing Indonesian pavilion in order to meet the selected theme requirements.
What are they? Catch the praise on the video above!
Sanne Derks (@sanne_derks_photojournalism) reacting on our previous FFConversation with Carly Clarke (@Clarke_carly and Ala Buisir (@buisir). I think we photographers are often very much attached to our subjects, loving the people we meet and giving a lot of importance to get these voices heard and these stories seen. Regarding your question what is the most effective in visual storytelling, to me this is still complex. We are also dependent on the opinions of editors, who have the power to publish -or not. And even if are stories are published in established media, realities of our subjects not necessarily change.

Therefore, I would like to raise another ethical struggle that I encounter in my practice as a photographer, regarding the hope for change from our subjects. For instance, I did a story on how squatters in Rio de Janeiro are reclaiming their rights to the city that was published in The Guardian. People are squatting because of necessity, due to a severe housing problem, not because of a political conviction. They open up to me, as they hope the media-attention it might generate will change their situation. I’ll put all my effort in representing their realities with dignity, and get the work published. But in the end, often their realities remain and there is not much we can do, as we also lack resources. I’d love to hear your thoughts about this.
A identidade faz parte da essência de uma pessoa e deve ser respeitada. Como nossa responsabilidade social e um de nossos princípios, nós, do Ateliê Sankofa, celebramos e valorizamos todos os tipos de identidade na nossa sociedade.
Não é errado ser quem você é e sua essência jamais deixará de ser linda diante de algum tipo de discriminação 😉

Origines et identités.
Le voilà, notre cinquième appel à projets. On sait déjà que ce thème nous est cher. Il est prêt depuis des mois, on attendait patiemment le bon moment pour le sortir, pour vous l’offrir.
Nous qui nous questionnons énormément sur nos origines, nos devenirs et nos identités, nous savons que nous ne somme pas seul-e-s. Que vous aussi, vous accordez beaucoup de temps à cela.
Parlez-nous d’anthropologie, de sociologie, d’histoire et de herstory. De littérature, de dystopie, de contes. Mais parlez-nous aussi de vos ancêtres, de vos gènes, de vos quêtes de sens. De vos parents, de vos familles, de vos arbres et de toutes leurs ramifications. Montrez-nous vos vieux albums photos, ceux qui traînent sous la poussière ou qui sont bien rangés, là, dans le tiroir du buffet.
Parlez-nous de post-colonialisme. Déconstruisons l’hégémonie blanche, les violences et redonnons à vos histoires, à nos histoires, toute leur vérité.
Parlez-nous de la douleur des violences commises envers vos peuples, envers vos corps, envers vos âmes.
Parlons d’espoir, de retrouvailles, d’architecture, d’espaces de rencontres. Visitions ensemble les lieux qui sont pour vous « comme à la maison ». Déambulons sur la route de vos souvenirs et découvrons-en chaque recoin.
Parlez-nous d’identités, dites-nous qui vous êtes. De la place que vous prenez dans ce monde, celle que vous voudriez prendre, ce que vous avez laissé derrière vous. Parlons d’identités civiles, genrées, poétiques ou imaginaires.
Parlez-nous de vous.

Kind in novum 10.19
Only recently the Norwegian agency Kind was crowned Agency of the Year at the European Design Awards – not their first impressive accolade but one of which the Bergen-based team is justifiably proud. This is the place where powerful visual identities – emotionally charged and coupled with Nordic minimalism – help large and small companies to a secure position in the market.

"What your grand-mother looked like when she was 30 ? " "Hey hold on, I got an old pic of her taken on 2019. It was the time when we rocked on Instagram. 😂
Take care of this picture my son, my daughter, maybe my twins. This is your heritage. Your blood. Your knowledge. Your roots. Your (part of) feminism. Your strenght. Your fears. Your tears. Your smile. Your magnificient brown skin. Your power. Your sexuality. Your imperfections. Your troubles. Your dreams. Your bad character. Your madness. Your style.
Be proud of all of this. This is your heritage. " 14 Septembre 2060.
Ride, cover by Maggie Lindemann... Thea and Melanie fronted... it's like they heard her broken heart and couldn't handle the pain... the crowd was so unkind to her tonight. To the point Claudius was co con, (former persecutor,now protector.) He was so angry, and the pain was too much. She finished her performance tonight with the song "Friends Go"... Now it clicked. Now we can maybe rest... though we know she'll never see our posts among the millions of followers she has... @maggielindemann we hear you. Thank you for hearing us. Though you don't know us at all. Thank you for coming to this small corner of the world, if only for a moment to show us were NOT alone out here. Maybe your friends felt us, like we felt you... and won't be so quiet anymore. I'm sorry they told you they were imaginary and took them away. 💔

Salem shares their story of living as a non-binary person in a world where the gender binary is constantly enforced.
”We’re all born nonbinary. We learn gender. And at some point, some of us can’t stand it anymore.”

We brought our identities to the stage at the Vancouver Dyke March, and showed our audience what we are made of! Each section of this number represent the individual identities that make Fake Mustache such a diverse and unique troupe!
Sometimes I ask myself that question and it happens that I can find an answer, like: “Today I’m a super-duper-world-princess-warrior!” or “I finally found my destination as a silent-deep-over-the-top-thinker who would say things like, - yeeah... you know the world is round and we are all just circular species on this turning constellation 🧐”. But most of the time I’m not really conscious about who I am at the moment and just think stuff about myself in my little bubble. But hey, who cares? I don’t mind to be a risk taker that day and another day a mega pessimist, as long as I don’t lose my true self. And that means to accept all different identities you dream about, already had and want to be, because they are all part of one person and that describes it in a very unique way.☺️ photo: @kianagovind 🥰
What do you say after the words “I AM”? 🤔🤔 Is it I am depressed?
Or I am anxious?
How does that even make sense?
How could you be an emotion?
Truth is, you experience anxiety and you experience depression, but that is not who you are!
Whatever you stick behind the words “I AM” the ego will make sure to find evidence as to why it’s true.
The ego loves identities!
So, the trick is to know your essence, know your core, know that you are a being of light, love and so much potential, but be super open to shifting your thoughts, beliefs and your world!
We evolve and grow every single day!
Even on a cellular level we are completely different today than we were yesterday.
How does it make sense to get stuck in an identity when as humans we are constantly growing and changing? && How would your life change if you were to wake up every morning and be super excited and curious to get to know yourself today?
