Kimani’s only tattoo is the name of his photography book, “Ascension,”

which follows his photographic journey from 2020 to 2022. It details his pandemic days, Black Lives Matter protests, and a Jamaican portrait series inspired by his father’s homeland. I love Kimani’s perfectly oversized leather jacket that sets his all-black outfit apart from others with its sharp collar and fitted yet boxy silhouette. His tattoo is the perfect addition to his outfit, peeking out from under his sleeve. I admire Kimani’s ability to pack his photography, activism, and heritage into the perfect one-word accessory.
