After the Chase

We sit here, With heavy tongues and nothing but the sun between us to heat up the icy quiet and these still Americanos. The hot from this cup seeps into my skin, Through calloused palms that aren’t overworked, Just under-moisturized. As the bitter of the coffee transacts with my lips Our eyes fit into each other over the brim of my cup – Not yet stained with the stain which fleetingly stains the black of my lips. The sweet of…

Looking Within: A Photo Essay by Frank Jackson

Creatives

Point guard Frank Jackson takes us behind the scenes of a place that he and thousands of Crazies consider home. Jackson’s dynamic shots capture the energy and passion found within the walls of Cameron Indoor. During his shoot, Jackson developed an “even deeper appreciation for the history behind this place.” We rarely have the chance to experience Cameron in complete tranquility and isolation and through this series Jackson seizes a rare opportunity to share this side of Cameron. Jackson believes…

Building Syria

Between jihadi militants on the east and an impermeable border on the west, lies the product of a seemingly interminable civil war. Each captured face with a unique and saddening expression portraying the hardship the refugees have withstood. Curiosity, fear, vulnerability and most importantly hope. Two brothers enthusiastically run towards a vending machine erratic – intently peering into it, noses pressed against the dusty glass. A life that was once taken for granted now poses as a luxury in times of adversity. I took these pictures…

At Ease

Take me back to the basics and the simple life. Sometimes, you get more than you bargained for. Sometimes the life that you once wished for is too much for you bear. As much as you try to keep moving, sometimes you need respite. Running on empty, you turn to the creature comforts that give you peace of mind. Tell me all of the things that make you feel at ease. A picture of a cherished childhood memory. A fleece…

Asking is a dangerous game.

Why ask questions, you don’t want answers to. To let the answers take control? To make you feel, make you hurt. To leave you desperately wanting to un-hear? The answer is given, but the sting continues on. Creeping into your thoughts at the most inconvenient times. Daring you, begging you, to look at everything differently. To freak out, to make a scene, to yell, scream, cry. So why ask? To be informed? Protect yourself. “What you don’t know won’t hurt…

The American Tobacco Campus is located in the downtown of Durham, North Carolina. Its name refers to the American Tobacco Company, the manufacturers of the famous and iconic cigarette brand “Lucky Strike”. American Tobacco was the home of the company until they left Durham in 1987. The campus has been refurbished with art, food, and business, and today it is one of the highlights of downtown Durham. My essay seeks to captures the theme of duality – night and day,…

How it Was, Is Not How it Is

There is one thing I was always sure of And that was being daddy’s girl. School, sports – With him by my side it was easy. Two peas in a pod, Two halves of a whole, He just understood. Finally someone understood. ——————————— It’s like I already knew what was coming out of his mouth before he said it. And just like that everything changes. Even if it doesn’t have to change it changes. And I hate him for it,…

The collection moves through a typical day of practice, depicting the hard work and commitment of one team. I hope that this series will change sexist assumptions in sport as well as highlight the achievements of a close-knit, club team. Photography By Simon Shore…
