LIFE

A man walks down the street
And he says
Why am I soft in the middle?
Why am I soft in the middle when the rest of my life is so hard?

Dolly Parton is a queen. 🙌❤️👑😍⭐️

Dolly Parton is a queen. 🙌❤️👑😍⭐️

The amount I miss you isn’t normal.

Or fair.

Or logical.

Or justified.

Or consensual.

Or allowed.

Or understood.

Or wanted.

Or okay.

And yet, I miss you anyway.

Huh?

Lateefah Smith by Kevin Morosky 

“My name is Lateefah Smith… Lateefah isn’t a ghetto or ‘urban’ name, whatever that means. It’s a North African name that means gentle and pleasant. Smith comes from my great great great Grandfather who was a blacksmith on a plantation.” 

Chang Jian Wen by Kevin Morosky 

“My name is Chang Jian Wen, Im not related to Bruce Lee. I’m far from rich, my mother and father worked two jobs each and saved so I could study here” 

Location : 178 Westbourne Grove, W11 2AD - Billboard no 1458

#MYNAMEIS is a public exhibition investigating the importance of names, the perception they give and the burden they may carry. Consisting of five works, each located on a billboard in various locations throughout London, the pieces encompass varying ideas on the assumptions and stereotypes that are associated with a name. 

My aim with this work is to start polite conversations about each others cultures. No more assumptions. Everyone should be outraged by any type of attack or phobia on any group, Not just the victim and the racial or religious background they have been pigeon holed to. Everyone should be offended by Mark Duggans treatment, not just black people from Tottenham, similar, not only woman should be disgusted that we live in a society that urges them to cover up rather then tell men and teach boys to show more respect. 

King.

“Expect to be challenged in Westbourne Grove by Morosky’s artwork that looks at the assumption that a person can base their expectations of a person’s race on their name. His work Lateefa Smith/ Chang Jian Wen seems particularly poignant in a city as multiracial as London.” - @wonderlandmag

My last ever retail job I was sent to the store on Westborne grove to cover. While there my store manager rang the store I was covering in and insisted I come back to my store so I could be interrogated in a surprise meeting about my recent illness. I simply put down the phone on her while she was still talking & got my coat. The supervisor of the store I was covering in asked where I was going. I said ” To be a photographer, I hope you reach your sales target” & I left. Went home and started sorting negatives & equipment. Majority of that work place thought me disillusioned. A hand full of years later my piece for the #mynameis Exhibition is on a billboard on the same street as the store.. Believing in yourself is real magic, once you start practicing it, not even Dumbledore can chat to you.

How was I supposed to know I should have told you that I love you?

Try not to let the loneliness consume you.

Try not to let it take over.

Try not to let it make you hit up that person you shouldn’t.

You shouldn’t.

You shouldn’t.

In a desperate attempt to feel like the flame.

Not the moth.

Not the moth.

She says.

Mid conversation.

With the flame.

The flame.
