#SubjectMatter | A Conversation with Anaka

#SubjectMatter is a series of candid conversations with multi-generational creatives whose art is used to mobilize, ignite and empower audiences toward positive, sustainable change. Today’s episode features Anaka, LA-based photographer and director, and her latest project, “FAME,” a photo series that examines how celebrities balance their true identities and projected personas in the limelight and behind closed doors.

EARFLOAT Mixtape Series

I noticed that a lot of music blogs and sites host mixtapes made with tracks from various up-in-coming artists, mash-ups from DJs, or indie bands that receive no sunshine from The Industry. But their compilations never truly resemble anything like an actual mixtape – a set of songs that sound as personal as a toothbrush, carefully arranged together by the selection’s owner and then offered back to others who aren’t afraid to use a pal’s toothbrush and are fearless in experimenting with dental hygiene from their mouth’s point of view.
