"In The Mood" VII_ Reflection Eternal

Thursday, June 26th
Reflection Eternal (Talib Kweli/Dj Hi-tek) got together for a classic performance inside the low-key Hotspot_Rehab, located in the Lower East Side section of Manhattan.

It was episode # 7 for the monthly nightlife event "In The Mood"_ Hosted by Dedan Kasimu

Female Dj's Eque & She-Rock set the tone for the ladies, and with Dj Kweli (when he wasnt on stage) and guest Dj Twilight Tone spinning the best in Hip Hop, R&B, House and old school hits, there wasnt a reason to not have attended this event.

We had the chance to celebrate the 30th birthday of Ron, co-founder and designer for brand label Leroy Jenkins Limited. And for an artistic twist, there was live body art painting carried out by Make-Up artist_Geeta Khanna.

Nuvany-Nice Interveiw- Cee The Photographer

Shout Outs to Ebony (E-Boogz) over at Nuvany-Nice for putting this interview together!
This is actually my first interview regarding My Photography, and i must say that im excited for the future!

Thanks Again Eb!

1. Name/Alias:
Cee (The Photographer)

2.Where are you from/ Where do you currently live?:
Queens Ny, baby!

3. Where did/do you go to school and your major?:
To be honest, my schooling came from real life endeavors. Majoring in street smarts with the ability to flip the script on a professional and business note, and how to make the best out of this confusion(life), but without the confusion tho.

Sorry,but I wont be sucked into the misconception of this world we live in.

4. What is your Grind?:

Kicksclusive Magazine,Writers Block (Photographer), and Freelancer. I also do events randomly, like "ILL Party Wednesdays" "In The Mood" and other events that seek young, hip photographers.

5. How did you get into what your doing now?:
Ive been shooting for a while now, but recently decided to go forward with the professional aspects of it. It all started with the disposable cameras. I wouldn't dare waste an exposure if thru my lens didn't look correct. And here i am!

6. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?:
As a child, I was soo animated and wanted to be something different everyday. For instance, if I discovered a new dance move, i wanted to be a choreographer/dancer of some sort. Or if I learned how to cook something, now i wanted to be a chef.
I see it like this,as long as i walk this earth, theres gotta be more than just this. So i get my hands on every and anything, and deliver it.

7. What are some contributing factors that shaped the life you live now?:
The harsh reality that still, society has an issue with the success of people of color, and while discrimination still holds its title at the gate, theres no other way around it except to make my mark, handle my part as a young black female, and create that path for our growing youth, who are unbeknownst to the world they have yet to enter.

8. Any specific people that mentored or helped guide you to your current path?:
God Almighty. That force is empowering. It makes me a warrior everyday. My armor is my knowledge and it has created me in every way.

9. What motivates you?:
The unknown motivates me. In a sense that I oughta educate myself on everything it seems like. Therefore, I'll never be in the dark, or in a room with the presence of a stranger.

10. Your favorite author and why?:
My favorite author is reality. Because it never lies. Non-Fiction

11. What are 3 goals you want to achieve within the next year?:
1.Getting my mind 100 percent right. Right now its at about 77 percent. I have 23 percent to go! 2. Getting more involved/active (general statement)
3. Making it through the year all together, as well as productively

12. One person that continuously inspires you and why?:
My parents. They grind soo hard. They allow me to see the fruits of their labor, and what "putting in that work" really means, and what it takes to become something out of nothing. That means alot to me.

13. 3 Indie brands you LOVE to rock?:
Cooyah Designs (cultured),LUX, Kimchi & Blue

14. What annoys you the most?:
Elitists (on that note, how about im better then them!)

15. Your best quality?:
Personality (id be a shmuck without it, lol)
