Black Lives Matter - Street Style Portrait Series

The Black Lives Matter Street Style Series features portraits of diverse people who I've photographed over the years, through my travels to New York and London. Each portrait is accompanied by a meaningful quote (selected by me) or a handwritten declaration (penned by the subject in the photo) that supports the Black Lives Matter movement. 100% of your purchase goes to The Loveland Foundation, which supports women and girls of color by offering them a safe place to receive mental health support through therapy. I will be matching donations of up to $500 in total.

::: Project Mission :::
I am using my street style photography as a platform to give to a charitable foundation and create ongoing and tangible social impact. My goal is to create and share prints that are driven by purpose, and also give you - the buyer - the opportunity to contribute to meaningful change, while hanging something beautiful in your home. These prints serve as an ongoing reminder to be committed to positive change that supports racial equality. The prints that include handwritten declarations allow you to connect to the person more deeply, and his/her values around the Black Lives Matter movement.

Thank you so much for your interest in supporting the Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund. Whether you have already donated or you are just learning about the project, we are grateful to have you on board.


 With therapy sessions in the U.S. typically costing anywhere from $60 - $250-- even with insurance, the prevalent and ingrained stigma surrounding mental health in many communities, and the fact that the vast majority of therapists in this country are white, it is often difficult for Black women and girls to access therapy when they need it. We wanted to change that. 


In our pilot program, we raised over $250,000 with the support of our generous community and provided financial assistance to hundreds of Black women and girls to go to therapy. We did this through collaborative partnerships with  Therapy for Black Girls, Open Path Collective, National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network, and Talkspace, networks and service providers that are all committed to making therapy more affordable and accessible. 


No matter how much you are able to give, we are excited to work together with our community again to bring therapy support directly to Black women and girls who need it. Please donate now to tangibly tell these women and girls, “We see you, we hear you, and we are invested in your healing.”Generations will benefit from their healing.
