My work intends to serve as an homage to everyday black women, men, and children. As a black artist, I'm dedicated to depicting the actualities of those black lives living in Atlanta Ga. Capturing these bold and unapologetic lives, I am a narrator. I use photography as an interdisciplinary medium to establish my compositions. Capturing life as I see it, street photography is my primary style. I then transform these photos into large black and white charcoal drawings. That time like this time is a paradigm shift for the country and the black community at large. A reminder of how far we have come, and yet there is still so much to do.
