    Seriously, Rugrats was not fucking around.

    People don’t give Rugrats enough credit for how progressive it was. I mean think about it.

    • Chuckie, for most of the series is raised by a single father
    • Angelica’s mother was a high ranking corporate executive
    • Phil and Lil’s mom was a feminist 
    • She also breastfed them (which the show actually depicted)
    • Tommy is half-Jewish and the show actually explored this part of his heritage

    Seriously, this show was fucking amazing!! They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore….

    Also don’t forget that Chuckie had an interracial family after the second movie.

    How are you guys forgetting Susie? I mean her mom was a doctor and her dad was a writer for a famous Children’s TV show. Not to mention Kimmie was anything BUT submissive.

    Remember when they had episodes that hit hard to issues kids might be dealing with? Chuckie only had his Dad on Mothers Day, Tommy had to deal with being outshadowed by a new baby brother, Phil and Lil were constantly being mixed up and then they had a couple episodes where they each found that even as a twin they were their own people.
    Man Rugrats was the shit.

    Identity and discovery–at both the collective and personal levels–are themes in the forefront of Omar Victor Diop’s Project Diaspora. A journey through time, the photographic series delves into and exposes less spoken narratives of the role of Africans out of Africa.

    With this body of work, Diop challenges us to rethink our own ideas of history and gives answer to his ongoing, internal dialogue of who he is as artist and person.

    Starting his research during a four month residency in Màlaga, Spain, where he was immersed in the reality of being a stranger, Diop has focused this first installment on Europe during the 15th through 19th centuries. Inspired by the many baroque artworks created during this time, he considers this period as an awakening of an intense (and previously nonexistent) era of interaction between Africa and the rest of the world. Using portraits of notable Africans in European history as his inspiration, Diop pits their life-journeys and legacies with those of his own, and further defining his intrigue of the singular destinies of travellers and those in alien environments.  (keep reading)

    There’s a striking intimacy embedded in almost every single portrait taken by South African photographer Mpho Mokgadi, that adds a delicate, poetic and romantic touch to his images - an intensely captivating factor that leaves one drawn to both the individuals in Mokgadi’s photographs and Mokgadi himself.

    Raised in South Africa’s capital city of Pretoria, Mpho Mokgadi’s relationship with photography began at an early age when his mother bought him his first point & shoot camera. Currently studying to obtain his 3- year National Diploma in Photography, the 25-year-old photographer has won an academic award for the most improved student 2012, and was an award winning photographer for a Pretoria News and Nikon South Africa competition. Mokgadi has also had his work featured in various online art magazines including 10and5.

    About his journey as a photographer, Mpho says:

    "What inspires me is the everyday reality of life and creating history through the lens. I spends most of his time refining, perfecting, even obsessing over my work. I have a very curious eye, which gets me into trouble sometimes.

    Through my own photography I seek to document my own personal experience, to capture scenes and events as I see them and share with others the beauty and diversity of the experiences I have seen.”
