Young, Black Street Photographer on the Rise:

I’m so honored to be featured in the Digital Diaspora project after I was able to present my work at the BronzeLens Film Festival of Atlanta and the Atlanta Celebrates Photography Festival this past week. 

It was my first time ever presenting my work and in front of a crowd of the Atlanta Photo Community and I was thrilled that they loved it. I didn’t expect an interview so you’ll see me be a little nervous. I just was overwhelmed at the great reception they gave. 

Jessie came to the shelter with her cagemate Crystal. Jessie is a sweet heart and LOVES all the attention you can give her. Go to www.washingtonferretdelights.org for adoption requirements.


Our goal is to make this small but great shelter #1 in the state of WA so she can get a $1000 dollar grant.
