Steve McCurry | on Tumblr (b.1950, USA) - Eloquence of the Eye

American photojournalist Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than 30 years, with scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name.

Born in a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; McCurry studied film at Pennsylvania State University, before going on to work for a local newspaper. After several years of freelance work, McCurry made his first of what would become many trips to India. Traveling with little more than a bag of clothes and another of film, he made his way across the subcontinent, exploring the country with his camera. It was after several months of travel that he found himself crossing the border into Pakistan. There, he met a group of refugees from Afghanistan, who smuggled him across the border into their country, just as the Russian Invasion was closing the country to all western journalists. Emerging in traditional dress, with full beard and weather-worn features after weeks embedded with the Mujahideen, McCurry brought the world the first images of the conflict in Afghanistan, putting a human face to the issue on every masthead.

Since then, McCurry has gone on to create stunning images over six continents and countless countries. His work spans conflicts, vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture alike - yet always retains the human element that made his celebrated image of the Afghan Girl such a powerful image.

Bisexual Steve Rogers

When the fandom insisted that Coulson was alive, the MCU changed canon to make it true. So why can’t we do the same thing for bisexual Steve Rogers? Obviously, the MCU writers listen to what the fans say, or Coulson would still be dead. But why does bisexual Steve Rogers matter?

Well, let’s start with what “bisexual” means. As a Real Life Bisexual, I define the word as such: “the ability to be attracted to those of my own and of other genders, not necessarily in the same way, not necessarily at the same time, and not necessarily to the same degree.” This is the most inclusive definition for bisexual that I have found, and most other bi people seem to agree with it.

So what would that mean for Steve, within the MCU? Well, firstly, he could be canonically attracted to anyone. Bucky, Sam, Tony are current favorites right now, but bisexuality would mean that these pairings could be canon without ignoring Peggy. Of course, openly admitting bisexuality would put Steve in the spotlight, explaining what that meant, how it affected the team, etc, which would bring a lot of understanding about bisexuality to the fans of MCU.

Outside of MCU, it would give bisexual fans, and bisexual people, a GREAT character who is not defined by his sexuality. Yeah, he’s bisexual, but he’s also patriotic and kind and a leader. He’s not only defined by his sexuality, the way far too many queer characters are. It’s a great way to educate, as well as open people’s minds.

Cap’s birthday, July 4th, is coming up. I know we’ve done things here on tumblr like Femslash February, so here is what I propose:

From now until July 4th, we create as much bisexual Steve Rogers stuff as we can. On July 4th, everybody posts their fanfiction, headcanons, art, anything. You can obviously post stuff before that date, but we try to get as much Bisexual Steve Rogers visibility on July 4th.

It would mean so much to me and so many other bisexual folk to have such great representation. Please. Let’s do this.

EDIT: There’s a Twitter campaign now, found here.

Inktober feels like it comes around faster every year D:. Love doing these though, probably wont have enough time to them them all as detailed as this but wanted to start that way atleast.

Steve lichman for inktober #1. Loved this comic and have been a big fan of Dave Rapozas work for years, really love all the advice in his tutorials and also Dan’s advice who he created steve lichman with. Just 2 really cool down to earth guys who’s advice has really helped me with my own art.

Really happy to see how well the kickstarter for volume 2 is going also, doing amazingly well already and still over a month left on it.

The List Part 1: Mrs. Rogers & Mrs. Barnes

I know, the MCU is an Ocean of Pain too but that’s why we have fan fiction so let’s set that aside and imagine Captain and Mrs. Rogers-Barnes waking up in the 21st century together, like I’ve been doing for the last couple of fics or so.

Above: two gigantic geriatric dorkfaces.  God bless America.

So, while Bucky, admittedly, is still recovering from the Winter Soldier ordeal, he hasn’t been the Winter Soldier for too long and what bothers him the most is that HYDRA attempted to send him after Steve.  So his nightmares would be, what if the programming didn’t break?

But Steve is there and even though they’ve woken up in this new world where a lot of things are different, they still have each other and that’s the important thing.  And okay, there is a whole lot to explore in the 21st century.   There’s a list.  Tony’s involved in a lot of these…. the boys are kind of fond of him, because he’s a lot more fun than Howard ever was.

Imagine Steve discovering Twitter and how much influence Captain America has, so he starts twitting about stuff like LGBT rights and campaigns to rise awareness and social justice and it actually helps a lot of people.

Contrary to popular belief, while Steve Rogers may have been 95 years old, he was not incompetent with technology. Very much the opposite, actually. SHIELD cooped him up for a considerably long time. When they finally allow Steve to explore the digital world for himself, he takes advantage of his super-serum in arguably the least glamorous way possible: staying up for 72 hours attempting to learn everything about the internet. Which, Steve learns, after skimming over the history of cronuts on Wikipedia at 5 o’ clock in the morning, is impossible.

However, what catches his attention is the social networking site Twitter, and his strangely overwhelmingly large influence on it. He’d thought that Tony Stark / Iron Man would be the reigning Avenger there, considering his technological power, but he’s been reliably informed that ever since the Chitauri Invasion of New York, Tony has been solidly billed down to number two on the Twitter popularity scale, and the hashtag #whatwouldcapdo is always trending.   

When he delves into the tag, he finds out a lot of people are using his image to promote their own beliefs; some he’s completely horrified by (He fought the Nazis, for god’s sake, why was a Neo-Nazi organization trying to affiliate with him), some he agrees with (vaccination is wonderful), and some he doesn’t quite understand. Sam tells him briefly about social justice, about trans struggles, feminism, racism, the LGBTIA+ movement, and Steve spends another few days looking everything up and absorbing the histories and developments behind them (in the process, also finding out a new acronym, MOGII, was a much more inclusive term than LGBTIA+).         

Sam helps him make a twitter, and Natasha makes sure that the person who took the original Captain America handle hands the url over, even though Steve tells her it’s fine. Steve later sends his condolences. Nat was brutal.

Steve uses his privileges to promote awareness for these issues, but never speaks on their behalf, instead rallying support for campaigns, petitions, talk shows and more, concisely in his 140 character word limit. He also begins to dismantle the tweets that use his name to bolster their oppressive views.

Within a few days, #CAPSMACKDOWN is trending worldwide.   

(Twitter’s servers almost overload a year after when Steve comes out as bisexual at one of the MOGII campaigns he’s supporting. #bisexualrogers2k15)
