Lol, I’ll pass, thanks.
I had to scroll through a hundred posts before I even found a person of color. It was an Asian woman. About another 20 or so posts before I found one black person, and at that point I gave up. There’s a little size diversity, sure. About one in seven posts had a chubby white person (which was not enough for me when the blog lacks other qualities). Otherwise, the rest were relatively thin.
If you are under the impression that a blog like that is interesting and relevant to me, I’m not sure you pay a whole lot of attention to what I actually post here.
Don’t get me wrong, I actually do follow a couple blogs that post a bunch of thin white people, but I typically do so with a begrudging attitude, and only do so for their landscape and other non portraiture photography. Heck, sometimes I even post a thin white person on my blog. And it’s not like that blog you recommended is disgustingly horrible in general— it just sucks at diversity and there’s nothing to be offered otherwise because it’s all people posts.
That’s why I have this blog. Aside from just posting what the hell I want, I am simultaneously attempting to create a place where a lot of people— (not all or always, and I will try to work on that but access to photos i like gets slimmer and slimmer) —who are cast aside by these artsy/hipster/photography blogs because of the combinations of their skin color and body type and weight and gender identity can see that they can be represented in an artsy and hip way, among photos of mountains and blue shores and high quality photos of food and fashion and cities and other pretty stuff.
I want to see people like myself reflected in this blog among all this fancy stuff. I want to see people unlike myself but also not like the majority of mainstream models juxtaposed against luxury and vintage shit. And also things that just catch my eye otherwise.
It’s not important to everyone, but I’m a visual person and it’s everything to me. But thanks for thinking of me, sort of. I highly encourage people to recommend blogs in the future, but think about what they offer to me. Kinda like paying attention to what someone might like before buying them a gift.
Longer answer than I initially intended, but whatever. You don’t care for it, scroll past or unfollow.
