Thoughts

This video was tough to watch as it brought a hidden reality of what people, and especially women of colour go through with their self identity. Racism is a serious issue, and it effects all of colour, but its implications on how we view our selves and its impact on our psychology is not highlighted as much.

I went for a shoot in the Old Port of Montreal and stumbled on this toy shop and I couldn’t help but take this shot to show my appreciation to all the black women and all of colour. I love you all and just wanted to say your are all beautiful and angels in my eyes.
