Remembering the Stains on the Sidewalk
For each murder that occurred in Baltimore City in 2016, I return to the scene of the crime on the exact day a the exact time one year after the violence took place. While there I take a photo to commemorate the life that was lost there exactly one year ago. I post these photos within 24 hours of taking them to my Facebook and Instagram pages so that the community can also take a moment out of their day to pause and reflect on the individual. I have spent every day of 2017 planning my life around other people's death, in hopes that these images bring about empathy and outrage by personalizing an issue that many of us have become jaded about.
