One of the photographers (and dope graphic designer) of this year’s NYC DOCUMENT the Fresh exhibition (Brody Rose) suggested I drop two of the NYC identities as T-Shirts, which seemed like a dope idea. I already had some basic Doc Fresh T-Shirts but these designs give the range some life. I’ve posted some of the designs below (link below) and to check out the full range click here 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.
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.
What is it about photography that you most enjoy?
Capturing the essence of that moment—whatever it is.
