Collection of street text:
When photographing street text, I was more aware of my surroundings. It was important for me to find text that represented the vibe and energy of the city and capture interesting and fun text.
After, I decided to create poems that, for me, represented the energy of the city around the time of the Women’s March back in January. I wanted to make the poems punchy, rhythmic, and optimistic similar to the parade chants that I heard.
The third poem, which I focused on the most, centers around this underlying message of hope and inclusiveness. I decided to take this poem develop it into a video that captured the feeling I was going for.
