  1. Am I the only one getting racist/imperialistic vibes from the second image? I know the inspiration is Haiti but it’s unsettling imo.

    • It’s always the same – minorities in the background lurking around while the white (or ‘acceptably’ white) model is the focus. I’m so sick of it.

    • yes i thought the same. While Adriana looks fierce and mybe a bit too fierce the other people in the picture looks sort of scared. I get from the picture a not so sweet relationships between the white girl and the black people.

    • Nope, I find it a bit disturbing as well. That “discover the beauty and inspiration” crap sounds pretty hollow at best and with the background in that 2nd pic doesn’t make any sense. They should’ve left it out and just settle on pretty photos.
