This is one of the latest images from my recent projects, "Homogeneity is a Myth." Featured in this image is Dr. Michael Greer, a doctor, activist, and art enthusiast. The main purpose of this project was suspend judgement based on first sight to allow a deeper glimpse into the person. Dr. Greer says, "I am an ageless creative black man...As long as I am able I will defy being placed into a time or category. I am a Board Certified M.D. Physician. I was an Ob/Gyn and Emergency Room Physician who worked at a North Carolina Emergency Room Hospital where the White Husband of a woman refused to have his wife examined by a Black Man (Me)…Unless she was dying or bleeding to death. Which was exactly the option. I did examine her and stopped the bleeding. Erase Racism one patient at a time. I feel ME when I see, feel, and touch ART. The HUMAN is able to always see and capture the unseeable and unthinkable in so many ways. I feel honored to live in a world with ART."

I'm doing a new series where I ask people what is one thing they've always wanted to do but haven't because of some aspect of their identity. I feel honored that people are able to be vulnerable with me. I'm also learning a lot about the oppressions people face. Portrait Face Art Mamiya

One day while walking down the street, this gentleman stopped me and asked, "Hey, is that the kind of camera that takes the whole picture?" I said, "Yeah." Then he asked, "How about you take my picture." So I did. No camera nor image can ever capture the whole picture. Street Streetphotography Portrait Photojournalism
I just found one of my first nightime landscape images I created on film. For this one I used Fujifilm Acros Neopan 100 with a 60 second exposure and a Mamiya RB67. As soon as I developed this negative, I knew I was going to be using a lot more film and appreciating the entire process. Film Is Not Dead Blackandwhite Landscape Black And White
