Antonyms of Beauty
Directed by Khalik Allah
ANTONYMS OF BEAUTY IS A QUITE ORIGINAL, HALF-HOUR VIDEO ENTIRELY MADE BY YOU, IN WHICH FOOTAGE OF LIFE ON LEXINGTON AVENUE AND SOME OF YOUR PICTURES TAKEN THERE ARE SEEN WHILE HEARING YOUR DIALOGUE WITH FRENCHIE. WHY DID YOU MAKE THIS VIDEO?
I’ve been staring into the sun since I was a child. Some people told me not to do that. I did it anyway. I madeAntonyms of Beauty for the same reason. I have to stare at what nobody wants to look at. Right now you see many young photographers shooting beautiful women with full breast and perfect nipples. It can be a bad photograph but a great set of breast and there you go. Antonyms of Beauty is my answer to all of that. Photography is more than tittys. Likewise, photography is more than poverty. Antonyms of Beauty is intended to take you deeper.
