In Photos: Portraits by photographer Jalani Morgan.

It’s always strange and a bit surreal to me when I look at a photograph of strangers and somehow manage to feel as though the person behind the lens has so aptly managed to capture the essence of those pictured. Perhaps it’s a bit of romanticism on my part, but I can’t help but feel that way when looking at the work of photographer Jalani Morgan. What may on the surface seem to be a simple portrait becomes an intensifying three-way relationship between the subject, the photographer and viewer.  A two-dimensional image is brought to life and in a matter of seconds, upon gazing at Morgan’s portraits, I have no option but to feel a close connection to the unknown faces captured by his lens.

Jalani Morgan is a portrait, fine art and documentary photographer. 

Born in Toronto, Ontario, and raised in Scarborough. He was influenced by his parents’ teachings of the African Diasporas and politics and through that is interjected into his art. 

He produces work that investigates the representation from the African diaspora.

Currently he is studying at York University in Toronto obtaining his degree in Anthropology and African Studies.

this just restored a little bit of my faith in a human element in mankind.

Context : art festival 48h Neukölln (traditionally diverse Berlin neighbourhood fighting gentrification by art festivals… wait) and much more important the two fabulous initiatives Hollaback!Berlin and Stop Telling Women to Smile; the latter being the art and resistance project by brooklyn visual artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. She will premiere her large scale drawings of some proud women of berlin fighting street harrassment.  

During the exhibitions there will also be an activist space, inviting you to show your own artwork, get together and network!

I have been called “racist” by White people whenever I specifically reject a legislative, political, media/film/art, or cultural manifestation of White supremacy. I’ve also been called “racist” for recounting any experience that I have had with racism. The actual act of naming what I heard or…

Everything is a black woman. That was the proposition. It was an acceptance of self and an acceptance of these weird limitations that are imposed on this self, my subjectivity—and then to try and look at historical images: at incidents of colonialism, at the formation of the idea of America, of slavery. Different sorts of representations of blackness within all of that—it sort of freed me up to approach everything this way, even though it imposed these very extreme limitations on a point of view. It was that paradox that I really wanted to try and articulate. Not just the history, the images, but also the paradoxical, contradictory mechanics.

Kisima Inŋitchuŋa (Never Alone)

Okay, so, this looks amazing. Readers mirtabrkulj and and alisaxon linked me to the trailer for this game, developed by the Iñupiat people and coming out this fall for PC, Xbox One and and PS4.

From The Mary Sue:

Never Alone is the upcoming inaugural title from Upper One Games, which describes itself as “the first indigenous-owned video game company in the U.S.”

The game follows the adventures of a young Iñupiaq girl as she attempts to stop an endless blizzard. There’s a big focus on cultural authenticity here, with a foundation in stories that have been around for thousands of years, and narration read in the Iñupiaq language (English subtitles will be provided).

As someone deeply interested in both folklore and games, I think it’s wonderful to see a very old storytelling tradition join hands with a new one. Never Alone will be released this fall for both PC and console.

This seems like a must-have for anyone who enjoys medieval fantasy, fairy tales, and folklore; it also makes me overjoyed to see more medieval indigenous histories and stories being produced by indigenous-owned companies! I imagine fans of Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner (myself included) would be interested in this as well!
