"I N D E P E N D E N C E"



Inspired by a Halloween photoshoot

Mario Daye and I did last October

(2020),  I wanted to do something

similar for July 4th.


With the U.S. now embracing the

wide spread celebration of

"Juneteenth", the goal was to evoke discomfort and spark conversation.


It was actually very simple, a Black

male with the Red, White, and Blue automatically catches anyone's eye

in 2021. Add the location of farm

fields and you're bound to have some questions.
