ARTS & CULTURE
It's hard for me to choose a favorite beat to photograph, but arts & culture is a contender for sure.
At The Red & Black, I started two weekly series: a local artist profile and a Black-owned business highlight. Interviewing, photographing and writing these stories quickly became a highlight of my work week, as I was invited into parts of my community I otherwise may never have explored. Building trust and connection with artists and local small business owners is one of my go-to ways to put down meaningful roots in a new community.
