Faces: Up Close & Personal is a 365 photography project that serves to #ShiftYourPerspective and change the narrative of the black experience. The black experience is one that is real; and it is full of life, love, creativity, spirit, and strength. With every image that we see, Thaddeus Miles works to overcome negative representations by upholding positive value in black lives and in American culture.
