Glad I got a chance to check out the homie Munch Joseph’s (CEO of HedRush Agency) show “Is Separate Ever Equal?” at DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities’ space in their HQ. In fact, it was too important of a show not to miss. The concept was Joseph curating a show centered around the 1954 Supreme Court case of Brown v. Board of Education. Five separate cases representing five jurisdictions across our nation were consolidated under one, each calling for gross societal inequities to be resolved.
Munch selected a range of contemporary artists who addressed these and other questions related to this topic. Visual art, public programming, thematic live performances and a series of lectures and demonstrations. To check out some of the works click Read the rest of this entry
The NYC opening reception of the third DOCUMENT the Fresh exhibition did not disappoint. Props to the artists for bringing their best in terms of works and solid installations, both of which spoke to their personalities and styles. Salute to everyone that attended, the Bishop Gallery for once again opening their doors to my ideas, props to Alexis (Madison Davenport PR) for the PR/marketing support, and thanks again to the participating photographers. I’m planning a closing reception/BBQ to take place later this month so stay tuned.

Music, Fashion & my Mom. Music has always played a big part of my life. My mother would attend concerts and shared her photos & stories. My mother took me to see New Edition, the music & the lights …just the whole vibe and emotions that I felt instilled a love of music in me. And I wanted to capture that. Then the hip-hop scene further intensified my love for photography.
Early on what were some of the first things that you began to document?
The usual stuff; family, rocks, my feet but that’s when I was a little girl. When I picked up the camera again as an adult it was my love for live concerts, wanting to capture that moment. For the entire read click Read the rest of this entry
Gearing up for my next DOCUMENT the Fresh exhibition in NYC and things are shaping up nicely. Props to the Bishop Gallery (Brooklyn) for once again hosting the show and this year’s lineup of photographers are nothing short of amazing.
Our COLOR of SOUND Art Exhibition at the University of Maryland, Baltimore turned out to be one of our strongest presentations to date. All of the works set on easels creating more than ample spacing which allowed attendees to freely engage the works – front to back.
Thanks to the United Students of African Descent and the university’s USGA for bringing us, all of the attendees, Madison Davenport PR, and the participating artists: Cee Love, Zsudayka Nzinga, VonDell Green, Brody Rose, Candace Fong, and Aniekan Udofia.
