Telemachus. Farragut Street, New Orleans, by Frank Relle (2006)
“There are no people in my photos, but they are all character sketches of the people I grew up with. I want to make things that encapsulate that and are able to communicate that not in explicit terms, but giving people access and letting them create their own narratives.” - Frank Relle

“One of the reasons I came to Egypt is because it is so cheap to live here. I came about six months before the revolution. I was just doing my thing for six months. Then, the revolution started and, all of a sudden, photographers were in demand.” - David Degner

Revolution by Saidah Baba Talibah (2013) (via YouTube)

"I can’t say I find drastic differences in music around the world, other than the obvious, which is dictated by culture and environment. But it’s so true when they say that, “Music is a universal language.” This is what joins us all together. The heartbeat, the drum." -  Saidah Baba Talibah

Postcard for Clifton’s Pacific Seas Restaurant, Los Angeles CA (194?)
about: “Long before the Civil Rights movement allowed black Americans to freely patronize white-run establishments, Clifton’s restaurants were integrated. In response to a complaint about his progressive policy, Clinton wrote in his weekly newsletter, “If colored skin is a passport to death for our liberties, then it is a passport to Clifton’s.” Regardless of income or skin color, Clinton wanted everyone who ate at his restaurants to be completely satisfied, so the phrase “Dine free unless delighted” was printed on every check. Though many patrons ate for free, enough customers gave significantly more than they were asked to keep the business afloat.”

"I’m here to fix the lasagna" - New Yorker Cartoon by Matthew Diffee (2000)
"The New Yorker is a magazine about New York, really. That’s part of what people like about it, because I think people everywhere used to live here, or wished that they lived here, so we have a responsibility to report what’s going on in New York in a comedic way," - Matthew Diffee
