Covid/Black Lives

2020

 

Driving home from the gallery the contrast of boarded up and graffiti laden input on the windows of the Colorado Education Association struck me as a stark reality driven by social change.  When asked to participate in the Sarajevo exhibition, it was the first image I returned to photograph and document. While investigating other spots affected by covid-19, homelessness, and protest locations, I came across a tight knit group of African Americans utilizing a street corner as a social gathering spot. One woman stood out from the group creating the opportunity for me to incorporate the visual strength of her person into a montage with the first image.
