I swear next year I’m going to the Afropunk festival. Ever since I saw the documentary a few years back I finally felt like someone made a film about me, and for me that was speaking my language. It’s now become more of a movement and I’ve followed them on Facebook for years it seems. Each year in NYC there is an Afropunk festival that is a display of some of the best rock bands in the music scene. It’s just another wonderful reminder that music has no color and there are still some places where everyone can gather together and celebrate our differences and become connected.
I’ve gathered some of my favorite street style looks from various sites. Each year I’m even more excited to see the style that comes from the festival and this year is no different. I need to do casting here as well, I want to photograph all of these people. Yes, definitely must go next year.
