Let Me Sow Love

Let Me Sow Love is a direct result of the growing sociopolitical and racial divide in the United States. As a firm believer in social and political progress, I feel as though we’ve lost our footing on the path towards change and growth. As an artist of color, I feel an unbearable need to document this growing divide. A culture of anxiety and fear has spread rampantly over the place I call home. Rather than actively searching for evidence of the divide, I chose to take a more meditative approach when making photos of the world around me. Realizing photography can be used as a tool for personal healing, self-reflection, and mindfulness. In some ways, these photos are a culmination of different things I am trying to keep hold of in turbulent times. In other ways, the work functions as a way for me to stay connected to a world that I’ve grown extremely wary towards.
