About.

My photo
Visual Journalism Student/ Photographer/Fashion Blogger. I love finding beauty where others don't, and I believe art can be found almost everywhere. Old and new, we can learn from all, and getting to a place where you can realize that is probably the most freeing a person can feel ever. But basically I love Fashion, and the designers are the artists with visions and their canvas' are us and the world, and I love helping spreading that message. "Ultimately isn't that fashion is about? We're all a bunch of big kids playing dress up." Feel free to e-mail me @ andrewwwhester@gmail.com to talk about anything!

Willie Cole : Transformations Exhibit, July 2015.

American artist, Willie Cole currently has an exhibit in the city of Birmingham, Al at the UAB's AEIVA. The exhibit also includes photography from Spider Martin & other pieces of relevance such as Elizabeth Russell's "Song of the South", 2010. (second row, left.)
It was hard to block certain events involving race & culture in today's American culture out of my mind before viewing the exhibit, but being unable to let go helped me see the works with my perception of the past and the present. 
The exhibit is titled Willie Cole: Transformations & will be on view until August 8, 2015.
