Lately, I’ve taken to deliberately avoiding the latest headlines about Covid-19 and aggressively focusing on the things which give me joy. Like lingerie. (You’re very surprised, I know.) As a Black woman, I’m always looking for photographers who know how to capture our skintones without lightening them…and for designers who […]
