After the Flood

These images question the relationship between human destiny and the surrounding environment by combining Google Earth landscapes with mugshots of African American men.  I was initially moved to create environmental portraits during a flight when I noticed the visual correlation between urban streets and cornrows. In this portfolio, I combined mugshots, cityscapes, and large scale landforms taking inspiration from Dorothea Lange’s dustbowl observation “As the soil erodes so does society.”
