Artist Statement

My photo represents my belief in equality. Individuals throughout history continue to be recognized in honor of their persistence to achieve what they knew was right. I have used an expressive method to convey my message: relationships should grow based on aspects other than external features. The fence represents the boundaries that infect society, while the joined fingers symbolize the efforts to unite and “defy those boundaries.”
