Hi everybody fuego is back
I’m still alive and back with them new new film shots. So as you can tell this really is my first all analogue post. I finally got to see and scan these pictures I took right before I left to visit my hometown (ofc I took some pics there too). And I still got a lot of analogue pictures from the time I was in Istanbul and Berlin I didn’t scan but since I got plenty of time on my hands right now, I know what I will be doing the next few weeks. Believe me this takes a lot of time but whilst you are scanning and analysing pictures you’ll forget about the time and suddenly it’s 4 AM and you catch yourself waking up from falling asleep infront of the open refrigerator next to your mom asking herself what she might did wrong.
I got to chill with the OG GANG and took some pictures of them casually strolling around in their neighborhood. They are all really cool people to hang out and shoot some good pictures with. Everyone of them is an individual and most of them are friends since like forever becaus they grew up together in this neighborhood. So the location was more meaningful this time I guess. I was really happy to shoot such authentic and cool people that just be themselves and chill in their hood, that create and stay together.
So stay true to your block and support some “real mothefuckin’ OGs”.
How is y’all doing? So this time I won’t excuse myself because I had some school stuff to do the last few weeks (I didn’t do it lol). Anyways there is still a lot to come on this blog. There may be just 13-ish people that actually read this blog but I won’t disappoint my true and loyal readers. I do this for y’all.
Actually I don’t even know why I am doing this whole photography thing. I just want to share the stuff I do, with others and everyone that feels like having a look at my work and is interested in the things I be doing, when I’m not sleeping or binge watching any Netflix shows and sometimes (very rare, almost too rare) Animes.
yeah. I got told my blog is very authentic. This was what I was aiming for.
Anyways back to the actual post this was just a quick introduction to this post.
This shoot was a few weeks ago. With a dude called Lukas . He is a really kind and sweet person. Was really fun shooting with him. I have to admit that I did not plan anything for this shoot, but his whole outfit unintentionally matched the location and he was almost blending in with this grey metallic wall because of his grey GOSHA hoodie.
I also shot some pictures on my analogue cam that day. This shit is starting to get really expensive damn I might need a second job. If a lifestyle/fashion/art magazine is tryna hire holla at your girl with the job info lol.
So I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
I’m out b.
And here the #35mm pictures are following, tell me what you think about it ( or don’t ).
Yo wassup people
So as you may tell I’m back from Istanbul, a few pounds heavier, but I’m here again and who tf actually cares bout weight ( the people weighing your baggage at the airport do lol ).
Anyways I had a great time being there and was shooting film the whole time to capture the real feeling and atmosphere of the city, I just hope they turn out well. So stay tuned for the analogue madness ( I’m still working on the name ).
This skatepark is like one of the best locations I’ve ever came a cross. And I am slowly running out of good locatins so that was also a reason for me to pull up to the same spot again ( for the third time now ). This was a YOUNG PICASSOS x MOUBSEN session. Sadly the trio wasn’t there shooting together, it was just Kc and me. But we still managed to get some nice shots, even though the weather wasn’t playing along as usual.
We planned doing this session with Moubsen, the infamous munich streetstyle blogger, for a long time actually. But everytime you plan on doing something and already have some specific visions in your head it never turns out the way you expected it to be. But this is what it’s all about – the moment. Making the best out of your surroundings while using every bit of the moment you are given. ( I hope this don’t sound too corny lol).
Anyways I hope you enjoyed the post and the now following pictures.
As always, have a great and bessed day.
fuego is out.
So this week I somehow managed to do like 3 shoots , that means I got content for days. Sadly I won’t be able to post for the next week because I will be in Istanbul, but I will be shooting a lot of film that week so stay tuned for that too. I got a lot of scanned pics from my last 35mm shoots so there will be a post about this too.
Before I show you these pics let me tell you how I got these people to stand infront of the camera.
One day me and Ilaaf was strolling around the streets of Schwabing West and saw Jayson, a dude with an incredible sense of style, walking past us. And we both was like “yo this guy got steez”.Then we went into Pick and weight (a vintage store in Munich) and saw him again there, so we decided that this must be faith and the universe wanted me to shoot with him. Like the random person I am I walked up to him and casually asked him if he woud like me to take a few pictures of him. At first he was a bit surprised and kinda sceptical but then he gave in and had a look at my instagram lol ( I hope I didn’t bother him too much or didn’t come of as too intrusive). A few weeks later we actually linked up and took some pics at a local skatepark. He was there with his friend Joel and we took some pics until it turned dark. While we was there shooting I saw a group of girls chillin that kinda seemed familiar to me, so I walked up to them and asked if they would be okay with me taking some pictures of them. Turns out that these girls also run a blog called trulsblog. Sometimes the universe works in some crazy ways lol.
Today we had another session at the skatepark so there will be a part two next week.
I hope you enjoyed this post and the pictures included. Please check out their blog, it’s worth it.
Have a good night.
You know the feeling of being misunderstood?
There were some nice candids that haven’t been posted on social media yet so I decided to do that now.
These pictures were taken on two different days, the last session was with my super intelligent and super great friend Ilaaf (I hope she starts a blog soon too, you’d be impressed by her content) and Johanna .
On the first sessions our vision kinda failed lol. We wanted to take pictures of Ramzi laying in the grass with flowers in his hair but this vision failed badly. This set of pictures turned out really funny looking . Ramzi prepare yourself to get these candids on a birthday card this year when you turn 20.
The second session on friday was planned not so well because of me being a bit overwhelmed with school and life rn lol. But we still made it work somehow thanks to Ilaaf’s genius mind.
Anyways I hope you still enjoy these pictures.
Bye for now and thanks for reading.
Hi my fellow procastinating people
This time my caption is a bit more creative(?)
So let’s #throwback to last thursday. I actually planned to spend that day studying for my maths exam and doing some other irrelevant school shit. Guess what I did not do that day. Well I tried to mentally prepare myself for my exam, that counts as studying.
After I did the bare minimum of studying Tito called me and told me to roll to the studio because they were recording a Track called “onelittahboy (mit nem one Liter Vittel)” by Akin and that they would be going to an Hip-Hop event later on, so I decided that this was way more interesting than what I had to do.
So I rolled to the studio, listened to the track, took some pictures of Tito’s beat producing and rapping cousin Wegar, because he planned on releasing an EP this year. I asked him and another friend of them, who is also aspiring to become a rapper, some questions about their music and how it all started. But just wait until the time arrives and you will get to know more about this all. Just be patient folks.
As we arrived at the Hip-Hop event there was a bunch of guys already perfoming. Later on I found out that it was a group called DSDNG. They consisted of a guy playing a trumpet, a beatboxer, and two other guys rapping. As I stood there in the crowd and appreciated their rapping skills I casually just shot some offguards of them perfoming and showed it Chab (that’s the guy with the crazy hair). He was very chill, I asked him a few questions about their group. He told me that it all started a few years ago and that the group is consisting of rappers, beatboxers, bboys/girls and a lotta more members. I thought that this was really cool. Chab also performed on RAP AM MITTWOCH once. I hope that there will be a lot more to come from them, they seriously got some skills.
Pls check them out on Facebook and watch their latest video, they killed the beat (to be more precisely: they killed the beat to Kendrick’s Humble)
Thanks for reading so far.
Have a blessed day.
And a blessed Ramadan to my muslim brothers and sisters.
Fuego is out.
Like promised, here comes the second part. Enjoy.
My acting career has been a ride so far but I feel like I’ve only really scratched the surface. There are many more experiences to be had. I started acting about four years ago when I applied to be in an acting school which is now shut down. It must be noted that the acting school I decided to go to after being accepted was so much money and I eventually left because it was so much. But before I left I was told about monologue slam which is an acting competition which takes place in east london, which is how I got signed to my current agency. The acting school wasn’t the best way to get into acting but whatever. It’s good to experience. I never “fail”, I just see it as a learning curve, an opportunity to improve and work on myself. I like to carry a positive mindset because I don’t actually know what will happen in the next nanosecond of my life here in this reality. I realize that this is all very temporary and deriving any sort of attachment to it all is futile. I don’t really know how everyone is downloading their recognition of the futility of your own individual existence here on planet earth and the interconnectivity of all consciousness and our oneness, but I personally believe that seeking attachment to anything here is very pointless. Everything is truly honoured and appreciated here in this life because life is beautiful but fundamentally, nothing truly matters to me.
Anyway, I went off topic. In regards to my acting career, I have met so many people and my experiences and direct interactions with those people has humbled me, to realize that there is a lot of talent out there. I got signed to my agency about 2 years ago thanks to a competition called MonologueSlamUK. They basically put me on. The audience was always packed. 400-500 people. I kept applying and auditioning and I got through a couple of times and won a few times. On the fourth time of me performing, my current agency approached the people at MonologueSlamUK and asked for my details. A few months later I went to their headquarters with my mother and I signed with them. The rest is history. I gotta thank MonologueSlamUK though because they really exposed me and gave me the opportunity to do auditions for shows and films. One time I was out with my mother in town and some people from MonologueSlam recognized me lmao. That was crazy af. What are the chances of that happening? Randomly seeing someone who saw you perform at MonologueSlam. It’s not coincidence though everything is connected. I wouldn’t of known about Monologue Slam if it wasn’t for this acting school I used to go to called CTA.
My Dad took me to the auditions for that acting school but its kind of ironic because now he doesn’t support me in my acting career. There’s one meme which describes my Dad so well lmfao ezgi knows which one I’m talking about. The african Dad one.
I know that there are tons of aspiring actors out in LA and New York for example. Realists will say: “realistically, how do you think that you can compete with such a vast amount of competition? There’s a one in a million chance that you’ll make it” and me being an optimistic and a relativist, I say “everything is connected. Thoughts are magnetic. They have physical power. I always need to remember the laws of the universe and just see everything in a positive light. I believe this is my destiny. I already have it, I just need to actualise it. If it was easy, everyone would do it. I want to leave a legacy. this is what I want to do. The only person that can stop me, is me. I realize that there are other people trying to fulfill a similar perceived destiny but I need not think about those, for they are on their own individual path and relationship with truth. I need to make sure that what I’m doing is the focal point. Anything outside my family, friends, hobbies and my penultimate goal is a complete distraction. It’s cool to have fun along the way while I experiencing this reality but I need to lock back in once that “fun” is over.”
I’m really blessed to have such a good agency who provides me with plenty of auditions so that I can keep practicing and honing in on my craft. Nowadays when I go to auditions, I don’t get nervous because I’m used to the whole process of auditioning now. It’s only a matter of time before I’m on the billboards, cinema and television screens living my dreams.
To finish I would like to say this.
The spiritual journey is very individual, highly personal. It cannot be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth. Speak your own truth. Be your own truth.
Life isn’t happening to you, it is responding to you. Thoughts and our perception create our reality. Nothing is determinisitic. Nothing is true. All is mind. All is perceptual. Enjoy the journey. Peace, love, light.
*note – all views expressed are my opinion and how I am perceiving this reality. What I am saying isn’t neccesarily true, as truth is relative.*
So I once introduced guest writing on my blog, actually I wanted Tito to make the first guest appereance on here but apparently he is being a lazy and unproductive piece of shit ( sorry but dude send me that text).
Anyways, Michael did a great job writing about his passion and it kinda turned into an essay. He put in a lot of work and effort in writing this, hope you appreciate it like I did.
So here it is :
Firstly, the fundamental reason why we all wear clothes is because I believe we eventually became conditioned and brainwashed to believe that wearing clothes is normal, through various information outlets, controlled by corporations, who are controlled by elites and globalists. At the very beginning when we were evolving, we may have worn things to keep us warm and eventually we may have discovered better ways to cover ourselves but I believe that the reason why the idea of clothing is so engrained in our society is because somewhere down the line, people conformed to the idea that clothing was a neccesity and a requirement for living, which is why if you go out on the streets naked today, you’ll get looked at to say the least. At the start when this, as well as many other societal norms have been created by the elites and kept alive by us, the consumers, the 99%, who continue to do as they say and want.
Anyway, since being conditioned and subconsciously programmed to believe that wearing clothes is normal, I have made the most of this immense conditioning through innovation and creativity with the clothes I decide to wear. I pick what I wanna wear just before I got out. I don’t plan anything. I don’t always like to plan. I like to let the present moment flow, manifest naturally and just observe what happens sometimes. I don’t think about what I want to wear too much because I might overthink it. I want the moment to be organic. I want the outcome to be natural when I create an outfit. To me, that’s the beauty of it. the present moment is the only real moment we can experience first hand. From a quantum physical perspective, you could say that the past, present and future are all happening simultaneously but what I mean is that we can only do stuff NOW, like right now.
I get inspired by everything for my clothing ideas. absolutely everything. From the people in my local town to the people at brick lane. I’d say I’m quite open-minded, so I won’t immediately dismiss a certain style I see. I try to think why the person decided to dress that way too. more recently I’ve been more innovative and creative with my fashion. 98% of the time I shop for clothes, it is at the charity/thrift shop or depop. the other 2% is designer shops. I do get designer from charity/thrift shops sometimes though but it’s usually vintage. Ebay is decent too. I like some designer clothes but I don’t really like supreme, palace, bape, stone island, gosha and brands of the sort because I believe there is too much hype surrounding them and people who wear these clothes appear quite judgemental and egocentric to me. I guess this might not be an accurate statement because I have rafs and gosha socks and I’m probably the least egocentric person you’ll come across. But anyway in terms of designer, I like comme des garçons, acne, p+f, raf simons, vetements, champion and that’s about it to be honest. My favourite designer is probably vetements or p+f. I sorta fuck with gosha, mainly because they made a “1984” t-shirt. “1984” is also a book written by George Orwell who I admire a lot. From his literary texts and quotes, he seemed like a very perceptive man. Anyway, a lot of the tops I wear are also oversized because I like oversized clothing. The only time I don’t wear oversized tops is when I go to school, weddings and other events which require me to wear a suit and sometimes when I go to a place which requires me to conform to society in order not embarass others I care about. In england we have to wear school uniform. I go to sixth form which is after year 11. Some sixth forms allow you to wear non-uniform but not mine. I prefer it because this prevents discrimination and allows equality to be established.
Also, I get laughed at & looked at a lot whenever it is non-uniform day at school, purely because my style is alien to the mainstream look. There are those that are myopic, there are those that don’t care and there are those that are open-minded. Our school is a uniform school so we have to wear a uniform on a regular basis. however, on non-uniform day, everyone basically gets to express themselves through clothing & I feel like the judging meter is at it’s maximum on this day. Everyone is looking at everyone else, trying to see how much those shoes were, what shirt that was & what trousers they were. For me, the reason I get laughed at a lot is for many reasons. the first reason is because the society I live is quite myopic to a certain style and their horizons haven’t been broadened enough to realize that people can wear other things, as opposed to nike tns, an adidas t-shirt, or a puma tracksuit. Secondly, I believe they laugh because subconsciously, they are jealous of the amount of freedom I have to be able to express myself however the hell I want. I believe that the more free you are, the happier you are. I believe that subconsciously, they want a taste of that kind of freedom because they know how much happiness that’ll bring them. Those laughing are always the trend followers or hypebeasts, who are just living according to other people’s perception & standards, which to me is absurd. I don’t believe that higher consciousness, God, Buddha, Allah, The Universe, whatever name is on the door for you, wanted us to live by other people’s according. it wants us to live by our own according & be our greatest version, not a version filtered & tainted by the society we are surrounded by.
I heavily respect those who can accept my style for what it is because to me they realize that everything is relative to a person’s perception, that there are no absolute truths and that all the rules that we are bound by, even the unofficial rules, are just aspects which have been agreed upon by society. In other words, I feel like the ones who laugh out loud at my dress sense are the ones most controlled and conditioned by the societal constructs surrounding our lives. It’s unfortunate because to me those type of people will continue to live their lives like that and won’t access other levels of freedom and happiness, because they are living by what other people around them deem to be correct or “cool”. Of course I too have to conform to society for the sake of my family (my mother mainly) and friends. for example, at a rwandan traditional event I will act in a certain way which society deems to be right, as I have been taught these aspects by my parents. Or another example; if my friend offers to gives me a lift home from school and his parents are taking us home, I conform to the actions of what society perceives as “normal” and “sane” so to speak, because I don’t want to embarrass my friends or family for living by my own according. That’s selfish in my eyes because I know what kind of effect that could have on them in the long run. So this is how I live. I conform when I feel it is necessary. I don’t care about respect from others I just do it because I’m not selfish.
“Truth is a pathless land. everyone is having their own individual journey and relationship with truth”
