Today, African literary figures are not satisfied with just being writers. They tend to be multi-faceted and multi-talented. Selasi is certainly at the forefront this new trend. You know her as a novelist, but she is also a script-writer, a photographer, a filmmaker, a reality TV judge, a model—the list goes on.
She lives on three continents, loves fashion and lives the life of a literary jet-setter. Book festivals, lectures, tours, and a high-profile fashion photo shoot now and again are just a few ways the Yale and Oxford gradate keeps herself busy.
These different aspects of her life are captured on her Instagram page, @taiye.selasi. Since she travels a lot, her Instagram is loaded with images of sights and scenery. But there are images of herself—portraits, selfies, and photo shoot.
She also captures a good bit of moments shared with family and friends.
All in all, Selasi’s page has a vibe of someone who truly loves life and and lives it to the fullest!
Here are some of the images we love.
Enjoy and TGI freaking F!
