Brittani's Words

I’ve made it my business to go and document all the places around the world where melanated people live that the media talks down on. I not only document the story beauty and emotions they don’t show, but I make sure I get to the root of WHY so much destruction is happening. I feel this is a way to create a new version of history. Each picture I capture is a piece of history that I am giving back to my people. It’s a reminder that no matter how much PAIN and STRUGGLE we go through, we will find ways to shine and rise above it. I document to bring awareness towards my people living in these areas by showing we all share the same struggle and love.
