smiling over tears
down to earth
beautiful in blackness
standing in the face of adversity
smiling in the storm
listening and waiting
I am a freelance photographer, poet and writer. As an artist, I attempt to accentuate the beauty in what I see, inspired by any initial scene, culture, others and leaning on my own imagination, I try to showcase works that create feelings amongst the audience.
'La Negra' for me visually, is a small celebration of black beauty focusing on the woman. The words that accompany the photographs describe the black man, woman and child in the present, past and probably the future. However, I leave it up to the viewers to interpret it how they see fit, because art can be a reflection of the mind, as well as the artist.
