    I really admire what homeboy here does with his platform. I like that he and his friends get to travel to all these amazing places and show black people in such an amazing light.


    The photos of him and his friends are really captivating and the colors are just sublime. His friends are all very good looking dudes with polished, glistening skin and pearly white teeth, is that an LA thing? If it is

    Makes me wish I had such many friends and the finances to organize these trips for them every year. You can read more about him in the link below;

    Not to hijack the positivity in this thread.... but am I the only one slightly bothered by the Eugenics-appearing sameness of all of his friends? They all look like generic cast members of the same millennial LA or NYC based relationship web series where they always dress like they're about to go to an Essence Magazine photoshoot at any given moment...

    This may be just be a result of the expense required to travel and maybe only his similar appearing "professional" friends of a certain financial/social status can afford to do so (which is not really a bad thing). But this blandness of the group isn't really appealing to me.

    I think maybe its that thing where good looking ppl hangout/are friends with other good looking ppl or it could also be an LA thing where most folks there are very good looking. His inta seems to suggest that though...

    @Lancer Good call bro. Yes indeed, his instagram is freakin BEAUTIFUL. He has a great eye with all the colors and angles he chooses with his photography.

    Not to mention seeing black people in this light (all shades, with one another, smiling and celebrating life) how could anyone find negative in that. #imrootingforeverbodyblack

    Side note - Yea it is crazy to see all of them looking very similar to one another, but then you think "why would it be any different"? Birds of a feather, flock together. Im sure they all have very similar backgrounds, college experiences, professional lives, etc. And im sure they all push each other to be successful.

    (Fuck I need a friend circle of this caliber, im slacking) cpnoway

    i worry sometimes that travel/passport stamps have become the newest form of hierarchy among (college educated) blk folks. "look, i travel, you dont."

    that said, i think what he's doing here is great.
    • disrupting the stereotype that blk ppl don't travel
    • offering greater representation in the media around blk millennials
    • modeling the ways blk (gay) men create community w/o all of our usual hang ups #freegayblkmen
    like you, @Omega Level, i don't understand the argument that they look the same. the point of events w/ a color theme -- i presume that's what's happening here -- is to see the range in individual choices when given similar constraints. it's the same as all-white parties.

    based on my limited knowledge, i see lots of diversity here. maybe folks want representation for fats and old heads lol.
    • a funeral director, two photographers, a social worker, a stylist, an actor/director, a journalist and an entrepreneur.
    • jersey, dc, detroit, florida, nyc, nola and los angeles.
    • first generation africans, blk americans, light skin, chocolates, short kinky hair, long pressed hair, beards, clean shaven.
    anyone who has the vision and coordination skills to wrangle a grp of blk folks, who won't flake out on the trip, and incorporates a theme gets my respect.

    side note: i wonder if there's any connection btwn solange's wedding photos and this series. not sure which came first.

    I love is work. The pictures and whole aesthetic looks soo great.

    But I always wondered about logistics. Like who organized the trip? Do they use a travel service? How do they get the pics to look so great? How many clothes does everyone pack? Do they fly into a big city airport together then take a charter bus to the smaller cities they travel to?
