We didn’t win an Oscar, we won representation for our ancestors.

Inspired by the last TWD episode, “Still”. Gotta sayyyyy I’m really liking these two together, although interpret it how you want! :)

I was recently commissioned to photograph five generations of descendants of Solomon Northup, author of “12 Years a Slave”. The feature can be seen in this week’s newsstand ‘Oscar’s Edition’ of The Hollywood Reporter as well as here.
However small, I feel honored to play a role in the sharing of Solomon Northup’s legacy. It was definitely an experience that I’ll always treasure. Enjoy!
