Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.
What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.
Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity.
Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.
For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood.
Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be.
if you have the chance, let your work criticize by the best photographers, or by people u respect. negative-constructive criticism get you and your photos on the next level, but sometimes…u nailed it!
here some words i get from Craig Semetko:
“Hi Bubba—this is a beautiful image. It works on every level—gorgeous light, lots of design, mood or emotion, and it provides the elements of a story to be completed by the viewer. Can’t think of anything I’d change. Well done!”
Why Tumblr should Fall In Love with Frida Kahlo.
YESshe is a legend
She was hella injuried in a trolley accident and spent her entire recovery period propped up in her bed painting non-stop.
Most of her paintings were self portraits where she painted every hair and every ‘flaw’ and highlighted them as a beautiful part of herself
She was ballin oh my gosh
