back when i was in college my introduction to photography was a b/w film class. personally, i didn’t think the course offered enough credits for how much work i had to put in the class. so much time was spent shooting and being in the darkroom. i would have never guess that 6 years down the road i would be returning to the same process. this time around it almost seems a bit more frustrating because i don’t have a professor to turn to and ask questions, but that’s why the internet is beautiful. with trial & error, research, and the help of friends i’m going to keep attempting to perfect my craft..
the next couple post will be images from underdeveloped film. i like some of the images so i decided to share anyway, they are photos that i took at the west indian day parade here in brooklyn
..was pretty fucking great. as some of you know, i was in chicago a couple weeks ago for my birthday and my nerdy fam had an event to celebrate the creatives of the chi. i had a photo booth set up for portraits and good vibes, you can view them all here.
if you know me, im not much of an holiday or bday person but i have to say this was definitely the best birthday week to date. chicago showed so much love, my book released and sold out on my birthday, kind of major was a success, and turning 27 felt very assuring. picking up a camera was the best decision of my life.
I’m super excited to announce that my first book ‘Black Boys' is releasing tomorrow April 16th (my birthday) at 6PM EST. This book is limited to 50 copies worldwide. For more information check out Creative Future.
