D' Jeli' Nya-I Sankore' Manetho is an alias adopted by TGOW-I Director/Facilitator, Dr. Marvin Haire, to support his creative designs as a DJ/MC promoting the Blues/Spiritual Matrix, on various social media, and as an aspiring photojournalist.
Through the art & craft of photojournalism, Nya-I's Lab strives to capture & present "visual moments" about significant places, people, life events & challenges occurring across the Afrikan Diaspora primarily through the medium of still photographic imagery. Among the goals of the craft are:
Words, in the craft of photojournalism, are purposely kept at a minimum. This reflects the old adage that "...a picture is worth a thousand words"! This suggests that the essence of a complex idea can be conveyed almost entirely by a single image and, in some instances, more effectively than words themselves.
AFRIKAN RHYTHMIC SOUNDSCAPES:
Great Black Music, both vocal and instrumental, is also employed in a supportive role to enhance the value and meaning of messages associated with selected photo journals in this lab. Toward this end, TGOW-I employs the art and practice of creating soundscapes to complement our photos. This involves specifying, acquiring or creating auditory elements using audio production techniques and tools, and commonly involves editing and mixing previously composed or recorded audio, such as music, sound effects or voice-overs, into multimedia presentations.
Among the themes explored in D' Jeli' Nya-I's Rhythmic Imagination Lab are:
Weathering the Storm, Sofar Tour, St. George's, Bermuda
A path along the way of being @1w/N!
Introspections on the Pan Afrikan World
