The Nature Of Simply Being

My photography deals with the nature of self preservation. As a child of Trinidadian immigrants and a member of the Afro diaspora my work attempts to decolonize the visual representation of black bodies. It works to dismantle the criminalization of black folk and destroy colonial racialized media. Rooted in magic realism my photographs attempt to bridge cultural mysticism, technology and self understanding. The images I create attempt to shed light on what it feels like to be black in early 21st century United States of America and most importantly, to give hope.
