Moses Sumney

Moses Sumney is first and foremost a voice – a pure, almost angelic voice. With a few EPs and a full album of minimalist soul jams under his belt, the artist is a relative newcomer on the music scene, but he has already surrounded himself with other talented musicians like Solange and Sufjan Stevens, opening for the latter on a recent tour. With Aromanticism, Moses set out to tackle a delicate issue: the absence of love and the inability to experience romantic love.

The more attention that our careers and home lives demand of us, the deeper we feel the urge to return to ourselves—our origins and the people who remind us of our power in the spaces we inhabit.

James Garcia: Photographer

“A lot of areas where I loved to shoot don’t even exist anymore,” James Garcia explains as he reflects on the changing nature of San Jose, where he’s spent the bulk of his life. “There used to be a lot of cool spots to shoot off Stockton Avenue—they’re no longer there.”

The Story of the Sixties

Imagine being a child and having Mick Jagger walk you to the park. Or maybe if you needed a lift, Keith Richards would turn up in his Bentley. It sounds like a bizarre dream – but to Adam Cooper, the son of photographer Michael Cooper, this was his childhood during the 1960s. “I remember when I met my wife, back in 1995, I took her to a Rolling Stones event in London where they were promoting the Voodoo Lounge album,” he says. “Keith turned to her, pointed a finger in my face and said, ‘I used to change his nappies!’”

Greta Gerwig: Redefining the Role of Women in Film

She is the kind of actor you cannot take your eyes off and fittingly, she is often called ‘the modern Catherine Deneuve’ owing to her blend of elegance, beauty, and charisma. Having become so besotted by Frances Ha (which costars the magnificent Adam Driver), I was pleased to discover that the director – Noah Baumbach – is actually her life partner and father of her baby. Baumbach has a long list of highly acclaimed films including Marriage Story, The Squid and the Whale, and Kicking and Screaming. His films are intensely personal and all boast dialogues that seem to have been improvised rather than written. Baumbach has the knack of luring the audience in with what initially seem like comedic, light, entertaining tales. However, he leaves many small, subtle clues that awaken the viewer’s sensitivity and empathy for his characters.

That Michelle Yeoh is nothing like the characters she plays on screen becomes increasingly evident as our day’s shooting proceeds. She’s smaller than you’d ever imagine and exceedingly lovely to be around.

Why Music Makes us Feel Nostalgic

“Ribs” by Lorde, “Tongue Tied” by Grouplove or maybe even any song by Vampire Weekend. If any of this music makes you feel heavily nostalgic for a certain time period in your life, you are not alone. Countless studies have been conducted examining the ways music can trigger nostalgia. In 1999, a study found that when a variety of songs from different eras were played for both college students and older adults, more often than not, the songs triggered memories. What was interesting was that these songs often evoked memories of an overall time period. For example, maybe your entire sophomore year of high school, as opposed to one date you went on. In the study, it was found that more often than not when a subject had a higher emotional attachment to a song, the more likely it was to evoke memories of a specific instance or time in their life. So when you come across a song that you used to listen to all the time with an ex or when your parents broke up, the more likely it is to transport you back to that time when listening to it.

Suddenly this term that had been relegated to the world of “nerdom” and academia was being used by every film and culture critic in every major news publication across the globe.

Mutation and an eco-queer perspective on black femininity

The use of collage in art is an incredibly subversive medium. It takes images, largely ones proliferated through capitalist marketing, and transforms them into images completely divorced from the image’s original form. Wangechi Mutu, a Kenyan-born and Brooklyn-based artist, uses collages to this effect.

Raven-Symoné Likes to Watch

After more than three decades spent growing up on stage and television, Raven-Symoné has made peace with the fact that her face, her roles, her music, memes, and merchandise have been a part of your life. But, as the performer says, “I tend to not dwell on this life that I have,” nor on her very public evolution from adorable child actor on The Cosby Show and teen star of Disney Channel hit That’s So Raven, to Billboard-charting recording artist, with adult roles in films and on Broadway, and a high-profile stint as a proudly out co-host of The View.
