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.

This book was bought for me by a friend. She had read a pre-release review and immediately thought of me. Now I’m not sure if I should be offended or not. Greedy, moi? Surely not.
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. My intention is to feature these moments as a collection of our voices and as a document of our response to this political climate.
