March 1 – April 29, 2018
My images connect individuals and communities to their current ecological and societal realities while aiming to strengthen the familial and collective ties of historical communities. Each image is inclusive of multiple historic locales that narrate its own story. With subtle embellishment, I create painterly photographs that are my unique signature, abstract expressionism. My art demonstrates the poetic and lyrical beauty of our natural world and its people.
I have lived east of the Anacostia River, in Washington, D.C.’s Ward 7, for over 20 years. I have come to know these communities and landscapes intimately. In this series of exhibited works, I present my environmental fine art photography with figurative subjects to depict the revered cityscapes, landscapes, and connected values that shape a sense of place for reflection and celebratory times.
My mission is to document and promote the diverse history and culture of our nation’s capital and surrounding areas. Throughout my life, I have experienced treasured memories of many varied communities in the Washington Metropolitan Area. My images have stimulated a renaissance that provokes dialogue and real engagement.
