AFROPUNK during a pandemic was a special one for me. It was the first time I felt a little normal in the last 2 years… particularly in the last 4 months. For those of you who just met me… HI!!! I’m GXFTD (formerly Natey Nukez) and I’m an Atlanta based creative. I capture visuals on a whim and occasionally I’ll go back to my roots in music lol (I’m a musician before I’m a photographer). If you just met me you probably don’t know the last few months/years have been a wild ride. I actually just survived 2 minor strokes 4 months ago. This festival was significant for me because it was the first time I got to see a lot of familiar faces (outside of Dragoncon) since everything happened. It’s also the first time in a long time I felt a lil bit normal. It’s ALSO my first shooting at a music festival since the LAST AFROPUNK in 2019 lol. It was a lot of firsts so thank you for rocking with me.
I decided this year I wanted to shoot first in B&W but GOOD NEWS… the color versions will be uploaded tomorrow (even if you saw the image in B&W at the festival. Don’t be stranger. Say Hi on occasion if you see me in your stories or feed. Tag me if you post (please and thank you lol). I guess I should update this site too lol. I’ll get to that at some point but for now I hope you enjoy the visuals.
