De favoriete instagram accounts van @bycarolijn

comment 0

Hi! Ik ben Carolijn, schrijver en moeder van twee kleine meisjes (en ook een beetje van labrador Frits). Een hele tijd geleden begon ik een Instagramaccount vol Amsterdamse grachtenpanden, later durfde ik ook mijn eigen hoofd te laten zien, nog wat jaar later waren het vooral mijn zwangere buik en het kleine lieve mensje dat daarin groeide die te zien waren op mijn foto’s, nu is het een mengelmoes van mijn werk, dingen die ik mooi vind, nog steeds een beetje mijn eigen hoofd en heel af en toe (onherkenbare) foto’s van mijn dochters. Een gezellige chaos, net zoals de accounts die ik volg; belangrijke nieuwsbronnen, hilarische memes, fijne verzamelplaatjesaccounts, en een hele hoop inspirerende mensen. Hierbij mijn 10 favoriete Instagram accounts op dit moment (het wisselt nogal), in random volgorde:


Kritisch account dat zich (voornamelijk) focust op fashion labels en media. Heeft de afgelopen maanden o.a. de vreselijke mental health issue van Vogue Portugal en de racistische praktijken binnen Zimmermann, Anthropologie en Reformation aan het licht gebracht.

@etro influencer diversity check ✔️. Fashion is getting back to normal after the grinding halt of COVID. Etro's Milan show is the first fashion show with a full audience. Around 80 attended, 24 of whom were influencers featured in portraits on Etro’s instagram story. Of those 24, there was only one influencer of color (@bryanboycom ). Several had come to Milan from other parts of Europe, so what’s the excuse for not having a single Black influencer? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Etro's team seems to have a different energy when it comes to model casting. Speaking to Vogue Runway, Veronica Etro emphasized the racial diversity of their catwalk “as if many different provenances were checking into the hotel, with their unique stories to tell and their wealth of memories and experience to share." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Italian brand has a history of white washing. Founded in 1968 as a textile house, they’ve made the paisley motif their signature. ELLE called the motif “synonymous” with the label. Paisley has a long design history, with shared roots in many parts of the world, though none of them are Italy. In the fashion world, it’s now more associated with an over-generalized “boho” aesthetic than with its origins in Persia and India. It’s one thing to appreciate the beautiful textiles of cultures the world over, its another to use them indiscriminately to the point of erasure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many looks used deadstock textiles from the houses’ archives, with everything made in Italy. Besides paisley (Persian), we also spotted Madras plaids (Indian), ikat and batik textiles (Indonesian), Navajo motifs (Native American), Kilim motifs (Turkish) and a “Native American” inspired fringed suede jacket, styled with preppy double-breasted blazers, Oxford shirts, and loafers in what Vogue called “an inventive jumble.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If brands want to authentically communicate their values of diversity and inclusion, it needs to show at all levels, not just in model casting, which is basically standard now. Boardrooms, influencers, guests, and properly acknowledged cultural references are part of a picture that could reflect the diversity of inspirations incorporated into the brand's "aesthetic”. • #etro #etross21

Al jaren mijn 1 van mijn favo’s. Een fantastische, getalenteerde vrouw die haar kinderen op een magische, artistieke en authentieke wijze weet vast te leggen. Ik ervaar altijd een enorm gevoel van rust als ik haar posts zie.


“Ik ben verliefd op jouw wereld”, schreef ik haar weleens. Liefde voor details, minimalisme, het echte leven. Check ook vooral haar @minimei.handmade waar ze haar prachtige draagdoeken en ander handgemaakt moois voor moeder en baby maakt.

Before the Scramble for Africa in 1880 compared to Africa in 1913, after it had been invaded, divided and colonized amongst the European powers.⁣ ⁣ The Scramble for Africa was largely driven by fervent nationalism and competition amongst European powers to obtain natural resources and build an empire. The term "White Man's Burden" appears during this time in Rudyard Kipling's poem about the Philippine–American War (1899–1902). The term is used as moral justification to support colonial imperialism. Many Western powers during this time actually believed that what they were doing was "good" because they were bringing "civilization" to the non-white peoples of the world.⁣ ⁣ In 1870, 10% of Africa had been colonized and most interactions between Europeans and Africans were strictly tied to ports along the coast. The threat of infectious diseases such as malaria, prevented the Europeans from venturing further inland.⁣ ⁣ However, industrialization and technological advancements in communication and transportation—such as railways, telegraphs and steamships—helped the Europeans to overcome many of the hurdles they faced in colonizing Africa. The development and wide spread use of quinine to treat malaria also allowed for the Europeans to expand further inland. ⁣ ⁣ By 1914, nearly 90% of Africa had been colonized. The only countries that remained unscathed from Europe's land grab were Ethiopia*, Liberia* and the Dervish state (part of modern-day Somalia).⁣ ⁣ *While Ethiopia was never colonized, it would be occupied by Italy from 1936 to 1941 during the second World War.⁣ *While Liberia was never colonized by European powers, it was founded by the American Colonization Society—a group of white Americans who wanted the enslaved Black people of America to move there. The land was purchased in 1817 from the local tribes and a few years later had its first settlers from America. ⁣ Source:⁣ ⁣ Image Source:

Detail from 'Behind Glass' Behind Glass is a portrait series documenting mothers and their children experiencing isolation in their homes during the period of enforced social distancing, to control the transmission of COVID-19 in Australia. I have built a practice investigating relationships between mother and child. In this series I explore my long-held fascination with photographing through windows to frame a subject – a process I have never felt is more poignant than now. At my home on Bundjalung Country in northern New South Wales, I – like so many parents – have been spending my days learning new rhythms with my two children at home. I am fascinated with the lightness and darkness of parenting in this time. Now alone, with the absence of external support and simultaneously never alone as we spend intense one on one time with our children. Behind glass, mother and child appear like living and breathing masterpieces – divine comedies of domesticity. Through this work I hope to make the invisible role of parenting in isolation visible: the deepest tenderness, tedium, quietude, love, frustration, fear and despair.
