Namaste! (That’s hello in Hindu^.^) I’m Ezekiel Dicks, a Digital Photography and Website Assistant intern at FIT. I’m from Harlem,NY. I’ve graduated high school at the age of 16 and will be attending college in the Fall. I’m a writer, I enjoy poetry and many genres of literature. I plan to major in archaeology in the future, at least for the time being- I find the study of past cultures, societies and human characteristics in general to be very interesting. But I’m not just a hipster who enjoys old things, I love traveling, trying new foods, going new places, shopping-and I do mean shopping, and photography (of course).
I value expression, being able to openly exhibit who I am through several mediums, style of dressing being one of them. I find my interests in some things to be nostalgic at times, I love incorporating styles from later eras into my own style. Fashion for me is a means to projecting my self-image and personality. I dress according to how I feel, the weird patterns and prints, I dress knowing that the clothing concealing my skin means more to me than expensive fabric or a label.
“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will tell you: I am here to live out loud.”-Emile Zola
I’d say “Dare to be Different,” but that seems too cliché, we are all different by nature, so why not live differently. Aspire to be!
