I will never look at Olaf the same way again
Can we talk?
Specifically about this guy:
He’s the best part of the All About That Base video by Meghan Trainor
So much so that I went through the entire video
And made a gif
of every single
scene he is in
if only because
I can’t get enough of it!
Didn’t think so.
EDIT: Turns out it’s this guy. Thanks for helping me find my new favorite dancer, Internet!

You know what really gets to me, and I’m sure many know this, is the blatant abuse and betrayal that white photogs display in POC countries. Every time a photo has gotten famous like this photo did in history, the actual focus of the photo is left behind in the dust while the white photog is hailed as a hero for displaying the ills of that country. He didn’t even fucking ask her name. He didn’t ask for 17 years. The world knew nothing about her life and her story. He captured one moment that made him famous and she got nothing.
Every time I see this photo, I seethe.
whats her name though
She wasn’t forgotten. If she was, there would never have been a search campaign to find her again. Her name is Sharbat Gula, and her face would eventually launch a campaign to find her again and get her perspective on how much has changed since Soviet occupation. She didn’t get nothing, she got worldwide fame and hers was THE face people thought of when considering young girls at the time and even now. In recognition of her, a fund was started that raised nearly 1 million for the education and benefit of young Afghani girls and women. The photographer was just on an assignment, and didn’t think his image would make the front cover or even be used (and it nearly wasn’t had his editor not made a habit of looking at the discarded images just in case.) Steve McCurry, the photographer, made every effort he possibly could to reunite with Gula and continues to this day to keep in touch with her. Here is his perspective on the thing. She lives a good life for where she is, and her face, captured in a few seconds of perfect photographic opportunity on the fly, inspired the generosity to help young girls like her. The photographer uses his skills to promote awareness of the world outside the reader’s borders. He took the time and effort to learn her name, but it seems some of you didn’t.
