    Easter Sunday, 2017. Two years ago, I made a zine called, Fresh Garb, about the beautiful people who follow the tradition of dressing up for Easter Sunday to signify a rebirth, new beginning, the resurrection, and most importantly hope. This year I was able to make these photographs for @voguemagazine. Unfortunately, the local, national, and international media’s agenda normally is to represent Chicago, and specifically these neighborhoods, in a light that is less than positive with little to no redeeming qualities, which I feel is far from the truth. Frankly, it’s unfair, not honest, and I think it’s important to highlight the awesome strength and hope these people possess in a place where it can easily be lost. Additionally, I had the amazing opportunity to give prints to a few of the families that I had photographed years prior for Fresh Garb. That was by and far the best part of my day. Thanks again @voguemagazine for giving me those opportunities. Head over to vogue.com to check out the photos. And you know I had sneak in a basketball photo into the edit. Peace.

    New zine popping out. I had the pleasure this past November being invited down to teach a zine/bookmaking workshop in New Orleans for @novacvideo, which is a non for profit organization that specializes in developing and shaping high schooler's artistic visions. These zines that each of my students made during our time together are being used as a portfolio piece to either getting into college or into the specialized artist high school in New Orleans to further expand on their education. The school system is a mess in New Orleans. The government should be held criminal in their efforts to rebuild the city after Katrina. During my off time from teaching I was able to make a book of my own that serves as an auxiliary for my Chicago work. Since then, the National Endowment of the Arts, which mind you takes up 0.012% of the federal budget, is in severe jeopardy of being dismantled, I decided to make this zine as a small way to fight those cuts. Programs like @novacvideo survive off of grants, without them it makes their work much harder than it already is. I'm only holding onto a handful of copies of this zine. If you bout it, bout it, I will have a few at my table during Chicago Zine Fest in May, outside of that and you can't make it there you may make a donation of $15 dollars (or more) to @novacvideo and send me a screenshot of the donation I will mail one directly to you. Peace.
