My practice is a personal meditation on the space between our world and that of spirit. Less interested in the destination, my photographs work to document the shift. The moments of time between moments of time, the pause between the clap. Raised in a deeply religious household and honoring the language of afro spiritualism my images reflect a lifetime of reverence for the divine while bearing the weight of our physical world. Now I find spirit in the collective hopes we place on a pair of sneakers, the way flowers reach for the sun, and the eyes of those I love. All can act as a portal to other worlds and as entrance for spirit unto ours. I photograph to bear witness of God as a reminder, as prayer, and as a reflection of self.
