beautiful americans

portraits, 2017

During Black History Month, in response to the newly elected president and the appointment of his cabinet, as a daily meditative act, I made a series of portraits of American citizens whose work or lives have brought insight or inspiration to me and others, and who have undoubtedly made the world a better place. I posted the works with accompanying text daily to Instagram. Click on a portrait to see the corresponding Instagram post.
