I love the process of shooting a portrait. A simple portrait of a person can be a powerful emotive display of someone in a specific moment of their life. There is something very artistically intrinsic about photographing someone, connecting with them, being able to see and move with them.
Growing up without seeing women like myself in media, mixed race and queer, is why I gravitated toward photography, to create my own library of brown and queer faces. We’re in a new and emerging era where marginalized voices are creating our own content and demanding to be seen. However, the folks with the hiring power or in charge of prolific platforms are still largely white cishet people who have their own agendas of what diversity and representation looks like... I’ve had to push back and claim my own space within this industry.
