these works all focus on the ‘gaze’ of Black people throughout the world, from both the perspective of the model and photographer. ‘what do you see when you see me?’
"Traumas & fears woven into defense mechanisms served with a side of "baked macaroni and cheese with extra cheese" so that even in pain our hearts and stomachs are nourished. Gaze offers much food for thought. A look into our collective mind's eye. The words that we often speak to ourselves and wished that you could hear through our silence. It is vulnerability. A call to be heard and understood."
