What inspires you?
Social issues and the human experience
What are your goals?
To tell stories which need telling and to create a record of anonymous people, who deserve recognition, and whose tales should be preserved for posterity.
My current project takes place in the poorest county of the Mississippi Delta. "Glendora: Sing About Me" is a multimedia project comprising a book of analog photography and in situ interviews, film and community projects. Its aim is twofold: to explore the connection between poverty and memory, and to record a town’s efforts to reclaim its lost heritage.
What are you proud of?
To give visibility, a face and a voice to people mostly vulnerable to silence and oblivion.
Do you have any advice for your fellow artists?
Art is a personal commitment and an inexorable need, it's your work every single day.
How does The Field help you?
More visibility and help to fund the projects I work on.
