I took this image during the Oscar Grant Riots in Oakland, CA.
Composing photographs through borrowing from and engaging with the environment around me has been a significant practice throughout the majority of my life. Having no professional training in photography, I trust my instincts and the emotional quality of the moment. I am drawn to contrasts in shape and shadow, light and dark, a variety of extremes, and intense visual stimulation. A narrative that I cannot find words to describe. My images are my expression of how I see truth.
