"Protect and Serve", 2020
Digital Collage as Archival Inkjet Print
Framed: 24" x 36"
This image was created out of a desire for protection for black men and woman in America. A hope that change will come to the penal system and that the true meaning of the phrase "protect and serve" will one day be upheld by the police force.
