cjaquay: Naomi Campbell photographed by Photograph Jean-Paul Goude, 2007-(via DWNH) Because she has only one pointe shoe on. Because her figure is of legend. Because they call her Naomi. Because she does not allow the fashion industry to disregard black beauty. Because her voice often get mistaken for anger. Because she can easily be dismissed as just a model. Because she is not liked by everyone. Because she has been an inspiration for many girls, brown and white.
Around the corner I met the 72 year old photographer Louis Mendes. Since the 1970s he has been photographing people in public places with his 1959 Graflex Speed Graphic. Photo: Thorsten Overgaard, Leica M9 with Leica 50mm Summicron-M f/2.0 II.
