Ok, so I don’t buy Fashion (emphasis on the “F”) magazines regularly for a lot of reasons. The main ones being a) they’re too damn expensive b) they are boring c) I usually couldn’t care less about the celebrity on the cover. However, sometimes something, usually someone, grabs me from the cover and I gladly hand over my $4.99 to Ms. Anna Wintour. This week, as I prepared for a long journey via public transportation from the airport, I was overwhelmed by the statuesque physique and Diana Ross weave of the unrivaled tennis phenomenon, Ms. Serena Williams.
Time, place, taste and cultural identity are the main themes within these snap-shots. Maloba takes us on a journey through what she recognises as a small world; revealing the diversities and similarities within various countries. One of the interesting aspects of this collection is the focus on being in between cultures; being a visitor and/or being visited. Every seasoned traveller will tell you that you learn more about the place you came from by leaving it, and Amanya is no exception.
