‘War Cry’ is an editorial/film that designer Alabama Blonde conceived & executed with “some really beautiful creatives who all had something to scream about because of the on-going and personal battles they face due to their queer identities, being people of colour, being creatives and the pursuit of a creative life – against all odds and all judgement.”
‘War Cry’ is an unapologetic declaration, and subsequent battle, against our inner demons and those people & the society who taunt and feed those demons. This is an expression of both vulnerability and rage. A way to steel ourselves against whatever the future can throw at us, a letting go of the negativity of the past and a declaration of pride and resilience.
This shoot & film was created with the hope to inspire courage and fortitude in the audience and give them the strength to do the same!
