  1. Thank you Shana for your input. Agreed. I liked that they took on the issue in the editorial and it is a gorgeous shoot.

    I checked it out and think that the shoot was well done. I can see how the racial implications could be perceived, but I would not have jumped to the conclusion that this is about adoption right away. I found the commenters very interesting on the site. Many are white parents who birthed black (or mixed race) babies and connected with the shoot on that level, which I think is kind of wonderful. If it was intended to be a commentary, I applaud the effort to make us think. Either way, it was a gorgeous shoot.

    Wow. I had not seen this. Thanks for posting. I am gonna check out the site, and I have a feeling I'll be back to comment further. For now, I'll say, I like the fact that they are taking on weighty issues in this medium.
