Today marks the 50th-year anniversary of Martin Luther King’s March on Washington and his speech “I Have a Dream.”
My grandparents made the trip down from Philadelphia to DC to march on Washington with many of their peers travelling from around the U.S. They often spoke of that day and how important it was for me to be proud of who you are and show yourself in the best light, no matter the trials and tribulations you may encounter. Always try to keep an uplifted spirit, persevere, and move forward. These wise words are the roots of inspiration in my work. I live to photograph peoples’ spirit and show them as positive beings, being the best that they can be.
