A genuine human connection has become rare during this time of technological advancement. My generation are the lab rats to this experiment. Having the power to connect to almost everyone on the planet seems beautiful at first, but has grown into an uncontrollable phenomenon of craving attention, and in some instances, love from people you don't know. This photograph tells the story of people who's deepest connection is with someone they can't touch physically.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Expressing myself is the only thing in life that has ever made sense. My artwork is an expression of my chaotic mind and experiences as a young black man raised in the suburbs. I never felt inspired by my surroundings or my peers. When I started making photographs, it was an attempt to make something beautiful in a place seemingly devoid of beauty. To my surprise, mundanity became my main source of inspiration for making art.
This work is on view at MINT Gallery as a part of the Atlanta Celebrates Photography One's to Watch 2020 exhibition.
