💭 “In London, people didn’t see me differently. I was blessed also by having a fair amount of white privilege, my hair is wavy and I am from a family of all white people. It was only once I moved to Kent at 11 that I noticed the difference, both in the lack of diversity and the things people called me. I wish there was more of an understanding that race isn’t just about identifying with one race. I wish more mixed race people didn’t feel the need to adopt just one part of their heritage. It’s a heartbreaking experience to hear my mixed friends say ‘I’m black, I’m not white,’ or something similar. I’ve had plenty more people tell me I’m more white than I am black. What is this need to box everyone? Why can’t I embrace all of my heritage? Why can’t you?” - @iamdionyves (Jamaican, St. Lucian, Indian and Scottish + Russian, Dutch, English, Latvian, Irish, Spanish, Portuguese) 🙌🏼🙌🏾⠀ ⠀ Meet @thenomadiclondoner , the photographer that is giving a fresh perspective on mixed race identities and embracing the anecdotes with her project @halu_halo ⠀ Interview by @ashleyfreya_ for Noctis Online
⭐️ “I think the experience of being mixed race, and all the identity issues, family dynamics, etc, that come with that, are not well represented in media or in culture more generally, which is why projects like this one, writers like Zadie Smith and plays like the recent Hashtag Lightie at Arcola are so important. At the same time though, because of colourism and fetishisation of light skin, mixed race people are hugely over represented when it comes to people of colour in general. So many PoC in the spotlight are mixed, no doubt largely because light skin is the only sort of colour deemed to be palatable to society/ a white audience – whether that’s as a princess, a president or a vogue cover girl. Even now when all brands and magazines are trying to capitalise on diversity, you still see so much of that space taken up by mixed race people. So, although the actual experience and politics of being mixed is still under-explored, and deserves more attention, I think we need to acknowledge that we’re also disproportionately over-represented in comparison to other PoC, which I think is an even bigger issue”. - @nainaydoo (Scottish and South African - of Indian origin) 🙌🏾🙌🏽 ⠀ ⠀ Meet @thenomadiclondoner , the photographer that is giving a fresh perspective on mixed race identities and embracing the anecdotes with her project @halu_halo ⠀ Interview by @ashleyfreya_ for Noctis Online
💕 “I believe things are much better nowadays. It isn’t taboo to see a mixed-race person in the media or even just in general, like it was before. I think we are now in this ‘melting pot’ era….in a matter of time we’ll all become one big mixed race. I hope we can move toward more representation of darker skinned men and women as lead roles so that women like my mum can feel like the heroine of their own story. I also hope that casts, in general, can become more diverse and representative of today’s society, which I think the industry is moving toward… It’s sad to watch things with just one or two ‘ethnically ambiguous’ girls thrown in for good measure”. @JaixiaBlue (English and Jamaican) 🙌🏼🙌🏾🙌🏿 ⠀ Meet @thenomadiclondoner , the photographer that is giving a fresh perspective on mixed race identities and embracing the anecdotes with her project @halu_halo ⠀ Interview by @ashleyfreya_ for Noctis Online
