Engaging in self-portraiture enables me to authentically embody the essence of the present. Within this creative realm, I weave not only the tapestry of my personal narrative but also channel the profound stories of my forebears, encapsulating the richness of our collective black experiences.


Utilizing photography as my chosen medium, I endeavor to articulate the intricate facets of blackness, immortalizing our history, validating our existence, and illuminating our boundless potential.


Emphasizing a profound connection to the moment, I employ a meticulous interplay of composition, manipulation of light, scrupulous attention to detail, thoughtfully chosen props, evocative tones, and purposeful color grading. Through these artistic elements, I endeavor to enthrall the viewer, inviting them to perceive the temporality of blackness from a distinctive vantage point.


Central to my artistic pursuit is the empowerment of the individual and the collective within the black community. My work serves as a catalyst for introspection, healing, engagement, and the unapologetic exploration of new dimensions.
