superheroesincolor: Counting Descent (2016) “Clint Smith’s debut poetry collection, Counting Descent, is a coming of age story that seeks to complicate our conception of lineage and tradition. Smith explores the cognitive dissonance that results from belonging to a community that unapologetically celebrates black humanity while living in a world that often renders blackness a caricature of fear.  His poems move fluidly across personal and political histories, all the while reflecting on the s...

“Kintsugi or kintsukuroi is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.”I don’t think I’ve mentioned this on my blog before, but in my non-nail-art life I am a psychiatric nurse, and I work with children and adolescents struggling with severe mental illness.  Some of the k...

This microscope was made for an aristocratic amateur scientist, who would have used it in his cabinet de curiosité to explore the mysteries of the natural world. These cabinets were single rooms, or even an elaborate series of rooms, containing a variety of natural specimens including shells, fossils, minerals, bottles of preserved animals, and a variety of stuffed exotic animals including armadillos and crocodiles. This microscope still works! The drawers in the case still contain the necessary...

I suffer from anxiety disorder. Film photography helps me to understand what happens inside my head. I like the “natural” course of events analogue photography offers; and the fact that you can’t control the final result of a picture.

It isn’t perfect either; there is somet...
