FURY

typette:

one of my favourite fairy tales ever is the one of Vasilisa… it’s about a little girl whose mother, on her deathbed, gives her a doll that comes to life when Vasilisa gives it something to eat and tells it her problems.

Her father remarries for her sake, but when her stepmother is really nice to her father, she’s rotten to Vasilisa and sends her out to find something in the forest that is impossible to find. She is warned by this strange spirit not to come this way, but she does because it’s growing dark and long story short she is abducted by the evil Baba Yaga and if she doesn’t clean her gross cobwebby house, cook massive feasts and other impossible things she will eat her. Her doll however comes to life and helps her out. 

Baba Yaga’s hut is “haunted” by all of her past victims and if Vasilisa can defeat her they all go free… but she needs their help, too. One of them, the spirit she saw, tries to help her the most but is cursed not to tell her why he’s there or what his name is. 

There’s like, a billion different versions of this tale and I’m sure most of them are online… one thing of note is that I think this is one of the very few european fairy tales that mention specifically the race of one of their characters without making it a ‘thing’. The entire story is very much Spirited Away-meets-Cinderella —while researching for these drawings I really noticed how Spirited Away seems to be a retelling of maybe something similar to that fairy tale, Haku as the spirit who helps her out but isn’t allowed to do much more than that, a little girl from the outside who has to obey a big evil bird-themed witch, lots of different spirits… I wonder if the inspiration for that movie came from this tale?? Who knows??

I should watch it again now… 

anyway have some drawings

In Photos: Portraits by photographer Jalani Morgan.

It’s always strange and a bit surreal to me when I look at a photograph of strangers and somehow manage to feel as though the person behind the lens has so aptly managed to capture the essence of those pictured. Perhaps it’s a bit of romanticism on my part, but I can’t help but feel that way when looking at the work of photographer Jalani Morgan. What may on the surface seem to be a simple portrait becomes an intensifying three-way relationship between the subject, the photographer and viewer.  A two-dimensional image is brought to life and in a matter of seconds, upon gazing at Morgan’s portraits, I have no option but to feel a close connection to the unknown faces captured by his lens.

Jalani Morgan is a portrait, fine art and documentary photographer. 

Born in Toronto, Ontario, and raised in Scarborough. He was influenced by his parents’ teachings of the African Diasporas and politics and through that is interjected into his art. 

He produces work that investigates the representation from the African diaspora.

Currently he is studying at York University in Toronto obtaining his degree in Anthropology and African Studies.
