In an interview with photographer and mentor Thaddeus Miles about his work and his effort to shift our perspectives, I felt inspired to directly seek work that contributes toward sharing world-views and perspectives while also seeking words that document this moment in our history. Thus, This Moment was created.
'A Call To Action' By Lynn B. Walsh | This Moment This Moment is a self-narrative project that asks us to be present, if for only a few minutes in our lives, to the events around us. The purpose is to become conscious of our experience in relation to what has happened throughout this political season and since this administration came into power.

This Moment is a self-narrative project that asks us to be present, if for only a few minutes in our lives. The purpose is to become conscious of our experience in relation to what has happened throughout this political season and since this administration came into power.

"Change has never taken place through words alone; it is the combination of images that give the narrative strength. If used correctly photography can inspire an individual, organization or entire community to become positive agents of change." -- Photographer, Community Member, & Mentor, Mr. Thaddeus Miles
