Originally from #Antigua 🇦🇬, Wendell Martin was studying architecture when he immigrated to #Detroit in the 70s and has lived here ever since. In addition to courting his future wife and eventually starting a family, he stayed because there were so many black professionals in the city, as well as a black mayor which was Coleman A. Young at the time. Those were contributing factors which he felt gave him something to aspire to. • • • #documentingdetroit #everydaymotorcity #everydayeverywhere #everydayprojects #Detroit #ColemanYoung #Antigua #architect #portraiture #sigma35mm #nikond750 #documentaryphotography #photojournalism #caribbean #CaribbeanHeritage #WestIndies #WestIndian

La Mayeya; rapper, musician, performer and owner of his own unisex salon is originally from the #DominicanRepublic . Years ago and prior to moving to #Detroit , he lived in Connecticut. The transition to moving from Connecticut to Detroit proved to be a difficult one...Back then, there was an even greater absence of the Caribbean presence and not to mention, the landscape here left much to be desired. He eventually found his footing and is proudly rooted in Detroit. Even though La Mayeya travels to various parts of this country to perform, surprisingly to me, he doesn’t see himself leaving Detroit. 🇩🇴🎶🎤💈 • • • #documentingdetroit #everydaymotorcity #everydayeverywhere #everydayprojects #Detroit #LaMayeya #wayawaya #barber #DominicanBarber #Dominican #portraiture #sigma35mm #nikond750 #documentaryphotography #photojournalism #caribbean #CaribbeanHeritage #WestIndies #WestIndian

Hey everyone! I’m taking over @everydaymotorcity ’s IG to bring you photos from my fellowship project “Connected: Caribbean Culture in #Detroit ”. For the next few days, we will be exploring the rich diaspora, traditions and history of Detroit’s Caribbean community-whose culture is not widely acknowledged, but continues to set itself apart. Join me!😊 *Detroit Caribbean Cultural Festival - August 11, 2018 • • • #documentingdetroit #everydaymotorcity #everydayeverywhere #everydayprojects #caribbean #westindian #caribbeanparade #blackisbeautiful #documentaryphotography #photojournalism #sigma35mm #nikond750
Screenshot of a screenshot of a screenshotx3 and IG edits applied... I once had a friend print one of my images from IG as a surprise and give it to me as a gift. That was before I was dependent on my photography to put food on the table and pay my bills (in addition to keeping me in People Mover passes). At that time I didn’t care if people stole my photos off here, I actually often gave them away for “the cause” as I thought of it back in those days (promoting the beauty of Detroit when the rest of the world wanted to portray her as the beast). Unfortunately I can’t afford to do that anymore, I think I posted this a year or so ago before I edited it, please take my word for it that the sky is amazing in the original... or you’ll be able to view and purchase it in person at @artisinmarket (Novi) & @allthingsdet at a discount price if you stop by the Nov. 4th show... 🤗 •••••••••••••••••••••••••• 📸x @picturedetroit •••••••••••••••••••••••••• #PictureDetroit #Detroit #DetroitRiverfront #DetroitSkies © • • • #DetroitArt #DetroitPhotographer #DetroitProud #Detroit_Igers #MotorCityShooters @motorcityshooters #DocumentingDetroit #PureMichigan #SeenInDetroit #ItsGoTimeDetroit #StreetDreamsMag #UrbanGrammers @puremichigan @rawdetroit @everydaymotorcity @detroit_igers #actuallydetroit #asdetroitsown #citygrammers #cityscenes #detroitarchitecture

Q. How long have you been modeling and how did you become a model? __________________________________________________ A: Tatyhana Blaise has been modeling on and off since she was a young girl. I first fell in love with the camera because of my dad who is a graphic designer. When it comes to the arts, we have a lot in common and similar passions. As I got older, I focused more on acting and the performing arts until I reached high school. My high school didn't have much of a performing arts community, so I had to step out on my own and figure out how to get back into doing the things I love. I did more on and off modeling from high school to throughout college and didn't not pursue it heavily until I recently started getting a lot of publicity from my professional football career with the Detroit Dark Angels. After returning to the camera for interviews and documentaries, I realized that I just love being in front of a camera. There is no turning back from here.
Q. Who is Tatyhana? __________________________________________________ A: Tatyhana Blaise is a 26 year old professional athlete who has a passion for modeling, acting, and sports broadcast journalism. She is an eclectic woman of many multimedia talents who is chasing her dreams and isn't taking "NO" for an answer. The athlete turned model/actress hopes to inspire young girl that they can do anything they put their mind to; from playing football to hitting the runway to the big screen. Tatyhana has embraced her edgy free spirit and enjoys being the creative director of her own life... with a lil bit of unicorn dust.

Q. Why do you want to model? __________________________________________________ A. Life behind the camera is therapeutic and expressive for me. For YEARS, friends and family have been encouraging me to pursue a modeling career but it wasn’t until the beginning of last month that i decided to brand myself as a model. The journey so far has been WONDERFUL! It’s been a journey of self-realization and self-identification. I’m excited to see what God has in store for me as i continue on this journey!

The right side of the brain looks at visual reference as a whole, whether it be a landscape, object, or piece of artwork, and then works its way into noticing finer details. The left side on the other hand, first sees the details and puts them together to form the bigger picture.
