This photo was taken May 30th, 2020, Union Square, New York City.

I chose black-and-white for the photo because it makes you question the time of when it was taken. I think it always kinda adds a vintage feel about it, and I definitely want to do that with this photo because a lot of these issues are the same things that were going on in the s- you know, for a very, very long time. So, I wanted to be reminiscent of that as well, and just get that reminder of how old it feels, but what it currently- what it actually is.

I chose flowers because flowers are very beautiful, and they're always seen as very delicate. For they're also very strong and powerful in a lot of ways; it still strikes me that a flower can grow from the concrete. And that's reminds me of people - in just the characteristics of people - and Black people, in particular. And the things and the situations that we can grow and blossom from.

That's what flowers reminded me of. And I think that that's I wanted to show in this photo: that despite all the things that [we've] endured, that you can't stop us from blossoming. And you can't stop us from blooming and growing and being powerful. And that's what I want to show in this photo.
