The canvas of life inspires me. Humanity and the art of living fuels my passion for capturing life in motion and the spirit of the times in a social, cultural, political and historical context.
I grew up in historic Treme the oldest African American neighborhood in the United States. During my childhood, Treme was a vibrant hub of visual, performance and cultural arts. My journey into photography began as a research scholar in academia documenting post Katrina New Orleans, specifically, the road to restoring and preserving New Orleans art, culture, lifestyle and entertainment.
My photography has since gone on to be featured as a call for art, featured exhibitions, standing exhibitions, curated exhibitions, published in the book, "The Way I See It ... photographers who capture the soul of New Orleans" and published in tourism literature. During New Orleans historic tricentennial year in 2018, my photography was featured in art festivals and art exhibitions to commemorate New Orleans 300th birthday. It was an honor to be among New Orleans artists and documentarians commemorating such a historic occasion and New Orleans next chapter. History was made.
I’ve worked on many different types of projects. Each project has expanded my experience, added to my portfolio and afforded me new opportunities. As a freelance photojournalist and Getty Images contributor, I’m always searching for more opportunities to explore further, continue growing, expand my skill set and collaborate with other artists. Take a moment to explore my work, and contact me with any questions.
