Apocalypse Vintage & Arizmendi


I just wanted to show you a beautiful tear sheet of christopher carroll photos from my last shoot with Apocalypse Vintage.

and also mention that I'm reading poems friday night as part of a super talented crew at the cutest co-op bakery around, Arizmendi.

Life is exciting! Ah! I'll tell you all about it when I'm not exhausted.

His rapier hilt a-twinkle, under the jewelled sky

The Bus Stop House (my lovely co-op) took some christmas photos on some buses. And by that I mean, a combination of me, a broken tripod, and my camera took the photos.
We were pirates or (as the quote makes reference) perhaps highwaymen?

Here are the out-takes:

Najva Sol, Queer Iranian Artist

Booyah, first page of google search.

People keep telling me they haven't met a queer persian before. I know there's a few of us out there...

My artist talk last night was nuts. I appreciated the questions, don't get me wrong, but I feel so inadequate, so under-informed to be the one telling a room full of people about the feminist context of the Qu'ran as a text or hijab in Turkey vs. Iran vs. Egypt etc etc.

Feels nice though, every time my worlds intersect.
