Fight for Love
Shot at KHIRY Studio after the brand's 2nd Runway Show, titled Fights Reveal Futilities, Fight for Love is a portfolio of images, and stories, capturing the love and intimacy of couples who are key supporters of the KHIRY brand. KHIRY Creative Director Jameel Mohammed shot the portraits to give space to what we fight for at our best; the ones we love most, and the space and energy we share with them.
"...we both work very hard in our own creative careers and sometimes we get so consumed in our work. But for us, nothing is better than seeing our hard work pay off to secure that W. My wins are his and his are mine. At the end of the day, all we want for each other is to see each other grow in whatever is important to us as individuals."

I love how we show up in the world together as complementary energy. I light up every time he walks in the room. It's a 1 of 1 type of love."
"We've both been in scenarios where our race or our class had an impact on how others treated us. There's a commitment to advocacy, education, and empathy that we constantly have to honor and overcome."

" During lockdown I found a photo I shot of Akili from that first night we met. In the photo Akili’s taking care of a friend who had drank too much. Many of my memories from that night are of how much she cares about others. Our first one on one conversation started because I noticed her preparing the surprise cake for the birthday girl in the kitchen. Her thoughtfulness and selflessness really drew me to her. "

We met in college, when I saw him in the dining hall I literally said out loud "that's gonna be my boyfriend"

We have been together for 10 years, throughout all of our twenties. We have held each other through the deaths of friends and family, mental health crises, social uprisings, an ongoing pandemic, and just the daily ups and downs of being alive in this chaotic time. While it has been a pleasure to go through it together, it has not been easy!
