"History doesn’t always honor your story…Create for yourself."
When looking through pictures that I had taken this year, this photo kept popping up in mind as a great canvas to work off of. I constantly think of the stories that are untold in this world and how dominant histories can be carefully packaged off of these abridged realities. When examining power and how it acts both for and against us, it’s wondrous how some histories are revered while others are overlooked and scoffed at.
The picture in it’s original form was taken in a Brooklyn subway while I was on the way home one night. I was walking by it and literally stopped for more than a minute to look at the entire wall. There was something about the tiled artwork that caught my eye and compelled me to take a picture. I’m glad that I did.
