⁣The Boss by P. H. Polk⠀

“To be portrayed in her own matter-of-factness: confident, hard working, adventuresome, assertive and stern. The pose, at an angle, and her expression, authoritative and firm, are not the result of my usual tactics to encourage a response. She wears her own clothes. She is not cloaked in victimization. She is not pitiful; therefore, she is not portrayed in pitiful surroundings. She is not helpless, and she is not cute. Instead she projects notions of independence, and is powerful in appearance, and is, by title, the boss.”⠀

⁣⁣"When I was writing the book, I was looking at these iconic images that everyone knew then pulling the contact sheets. There’s this photo of Biggie, Tupac, and Redman that’s out there—everyone knows this photo. So, I asked the photographer, Al Pereira, [to] send me the contact sheet. He sent it to me, and I was looking at it, [and I realized] Nas is in that photo. So I messaged Al, ‘you know, Nas is in your contact sheet,’ and he’s like, ‘I hadn’t looked at this since 1993.” 1993 happened to be one year before ‘Illmatic.’ So when Al took this photo, Nas wasn’t famous yet. The underground knew him, but photographers were not looking to take his photo. I posted it on the Contact High Instagram, and it turned out that there was no photo in existence of the two of them [Nas and Tupac]—ever. Nas freaked out; he called the magazine that I was writing for at the time, Mass Appeal, and he was like, ‘did someone Photoshop me into this photo?’ Texts were

⁣"In heavy storms I could only go out wearing goggles. It was impossible to see without them because you couldn’t open your eyes. So it would be dark, you’d be wearing goggles and the snow is blowing, and you’d have to look through this little viewfinder. And autofocus doesn’t work in the cold, so you are focusing manually. It was really hard to get anything.⠀ ⠀ It was also a constant challenge to avoid freezing my hands. Only at the very end of my time there did I figure out a method to be able to be outside for several hours: I wore thin gloves and inside of those I put hand warmers, and over all that I wore huge mittens. I figured out how to use the camera even wearing the mittens. And even if I had to use my fingers to do something, I could quickly do it and then go back into the mittens. They were so warm — we called it a hand sauna."⠀ ⠀ #ICPalumni @EstherHorvath (DOC'13) discusses her time in the Arctic with the @NYTimes. 🔗Tap the link in our bio for
