From: Chicago; based in NY & NJ area
Raised on the South Side of Chicago with my mother and siblings, led me to pursue documentary photography in order to capture powerful subjects that represent today’s society. Utilizing my background and creative soul that I was taught from a young age, I capture African American culture and my community at large, as well as creating personal visual stories of my past to communicate with my audience. To transform the next individual mind and perspective of this world is my goal. Utilizing identity, the gaze and my own perceptions, from older to present time all to understand myself. The process involves discovery and putting myself in another perspective. Primarily by documenting the youth, influential locations and taking self-portraits to investigate identity, life and love.
