MLK Day Celebration

MLK Day March & Celebration on Monday, January 21 was my second event shoot in Tucson. My focus for the day was the celebration (speakers) in Reid Park. As one of several freelance photographers covering the event, it felt like quite a collective and communal event.

Women’s March Tucson

The Women’s March Tucson was my first photo event in town. It was a beautiful and energizing day. I captured images that represented the community and event participants in a balanced way.

Test Shoot: Rhonda, “Delete the rest.”

Her response to her image gallery was, “Thanks for all your hard work! I see sickness in most of my photos…. I choose the ones I like…. I ask that you delete the rest.” I think her images and her comments add a great deal to the larger conversation of Black Womanhood in America. How we internalize our grief and disappointment. How they solidify and weigh us down in a deep abyss of cyclical suffering. How we can become incapable of seeing pass that one thing (situation, heartbreak, betrayal) that first knocked us down.
