To date, we’ve shared stories from writers and photographers from Vietnam, Nigeria, Kenya, and the U.S on topics ranging from raging Californian wildfires effects on avian populations to the vibrant yellows of Lagos’ transportation system.
Last but certainly not least, London-based international slam champion, performance poet, spoken word artist, and writer Y.A. to composed and performed ‘Loving (love in) Lines’, a poetic interpretation of PALETTE 1’s primeval reds, oranges, and yellow ochre tones. Watch the full performance in the video shot by Charles Rare above, and delve even deeper into the significance of the poem’s words by reading the written version below:
I speak this peace with the intention to offer representation and the everlasting statement that I am the amalgamation of love.
And as such, I declare myself worthy.
I know I’m enough.
I know love.
I know I am loved.
Live within love therefore I’m in love.
And as creation it’s fair to say God is love so I’ve learnt the aim is to meet God in us.
