Fact – New York City is amazing. Fact – you can do amazing things for free here. Case in point – the Brooklyn AfroPunk festival – acts like Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, Tv on the Radio – all performing at a free concert. Pretty much unheard of back home. I arrived there a fair amount of time earlier than my friends but since it was a photographers dream I entertained myself by snapping away. The style of the people was incredible – it is funny because in Joburg you will see a lot of people looking great, but very fashionable as opposed to doing there own thing. Here you can see people really have their own style, which extends far beyond the bounds of fashion.
