The Loves and Fears project, sprung from my work in Washington, east of the Anacostia River, the Invisible Wall. I wanted to engage in a collaborative project that allowed the residents a direct voice. I thought about what brings us together and tears us apart as people. I decided to photograph simple portraits of collaborators, asking them to write down their loves and fears. After scanning their entries, I blew up both the photographs and the and the written pieces and wheat-pasted them around Washington. This project was done with support from the Anacostia Arts Center, which provided me with a space on Martin Luther King Jr Ave in southeast Washington to host open studio days.
