Project Description (September 2010)

The series began as individually photographed images that were then juxtaposed together to create new narratives.  Some components come from my travels to Provincetown, Massachusetts; a coastal beach community that is home to a thriving Lesbian and Gay community. Other images were taken during the Odunde festival in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania rooted in the traditions of the Yorba. This festival celebrates the coming of another year for African diaspora people .

I was quite taken with the fields of purple flowers, seascapes and brown bodies and immediately thought of Alice Walker’s The Color Purple. This is dedicated to the real, metaphysical and sacred.
