Homage to Malik Sidibe
Inspiration can be derived from anything and everything.  One can be inspired by the light that comes through their window each morning, the color blue, their family, the trees... I find myself always looking for inspirational things to keep me going, especially when I'm feeling "stuck." Not knowing where I'll be living by the end of summer, or if I'll be hired by a prospective employer can be pretty darn stressful, but I always cope with these emotions by finding outlets to keep my spirit alive and happy!

This shoot was inspired by Malik Sidibe.  Sasha introduced me to this amazing photographer who is most known for his black and white captures of the 1960's pop culture scene in Bamako, Mali.  I read in an article that he was the "Cobrasnake of Bamako" haha!  Nonetheless, I will share with you the photos we derived inspiration from, then show you our translation of that.

I started this blog 4 months ago, and just by having it has exposed me to so many inspirational images, like-minded individuals, people that I never thought I would connect with, beautiful ideas, and more... A community of young adult women and men that are searching for the inspiration that will carry them through the rest of their lives.

Be inspired!  Think about what inspires you :)
