about

I was born in Jackson, Mississippi in 1992. As a green-eyed Black male, I have felt like an outsider when confronting my culture and race. Being raised in predominantly Black environments, school systems, and my family in the South exposed me to a cultural background that was supposed to be mine. The physicality of sports did not interest me, and I gravitated towards the beauty of art and music. I began to notice the confidence and assertion of dominance exhibited by the Black males that I grew up around. A lack of male connection and the feeling of being "othered" within my own culture caused me to pry my way back into it through an outsider perspective. The goal of my photographs is to regain control of the perception of the othered, Black bodies, identities and sexuality.
