Los Angeles, CA, USA
About my work
My work’s intention is to document this era of Black artists in Los Angeles through unconventional spaces and set designs. Through each portrait I am to convey the thoughts and emotions of, not only myself, but the models as well.
In 2017, I moved from Miami, Florida to Los Angeles, California in search of personal fulfillment, peace and creative opportunity. In the time since then, I’ve successfully obtained all of those things and more. Last year, I had my first photo exhibition in LA as a partnership with Urban Outfitters’ Hollywood location. Not only that, but I’ve had the opportunity to work with a multitude of different artists and do photo projects for Adidas Originals and others. Through all of these opportunities and experiences, I bring Black artistry to the forefront and attempt to create genuine representation for us in the spaces that lack it the most.
