At just 25 years old Rupi Kaur shaking shit up through photography, illustration and poetry.

Instagram removed it twice saying it “violated its community standards”. Of course Rupi fought back and continued to repost the image until Instagram gave a half hearted apology and allowed the image to remain.

If you missed that “scandal” and have somehow missed the phenomenon that is Rupi watch this….

If these images and sentiments speak to you I recommend you read milk and honey an anthology of poetry, prose, and illustrations split into four chapters each with a different theme and all totally relatable. So relatable that it earned its place on the New York Times Bestseller list for 77 weeks. Her second book, The Sun and Her Flowers is equally inspired and delves into the experiences of loss, trauma, healing, femininity, migration, and revolution.
