During my college days at VCU I had the opportunity to meet this amazing graphic designer, photographer, poet, and all around artist Rachel Topping! From leaving Richmond, VA post graduation to move to New York, to moving to LA, her journey has truly been inspiring and her work continues to blow my mind! The aesthetic of her instagram page is so eye catching, and it makes you wish you were there. Lately she’s been posting images from her trip to Cartagena, Colombia, and I had to share!
Over the next few years Rachel will be working on a book, collecting images of black faces all over the world and showing how beautifully similar and different we are as a people of the diaspora. Can’t wait to see this beautiful collection!
Make sure to keep up with her travels by following her on instagram @racheltopping_.
