“The street lights are out. The porch lights are off. The empty houses and vacant lots are illuminated by headlamps and siren strobes and police-cruiser searchlights, flashes of color amid myriad shades of gray. The murder victims are both black and white, as are the perps, in handcuffs, and the cops, in blue. For all of them, living in Flint, Michigan, is a story of the struggle to survive.” ... Charlie LeDuff has a way with words. Check out the piece Charlie and I put together for The New Yorker. Link is below. .... #flinttown #flintisaplace ...

Big news. Our show “Flint Town” is premiering on March 2nd on Netflix. And for those of you in NYC, we’ll be previewing two episodes at the IFC on February 27th. Tickets can be found through my bio link. Here’s a brief description of the project... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Step inside the Police Department of Flint, Mich., to see how officers confront budget cuts and a violent, struggling city in the face of public distrust. Riding in a police car. Sitting at a patrol meeting. Standing inside an abandoned home with years of memories still hanging on the walls. It’s a police force that mirrors the city. Flint has been hit by major budget cuts and staffing shortages amid the backdrop of a crippling water crisis, and yet the force is still expected to keep the citizens safe in one of the most violent cities in America.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hope you can make it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #flintisaplace @jessicadimmock @el_dreaski @anoncontent @netflix

“I want to be different because I’ve seen for the past few years, everybody go… they go basic. Red and white or white and black, all black, black and gold. I’m like, as a stylist, being creative, I wanted to do something different. So my jacket is royal purple, it’s mixed with symbols, it’s blue, it’s got a lot of things in it. When the sun hits it, it shines. That’s how I am as a person, when I step in the light, I shine. I wanted something to represent myself.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Catwalk. The Detroit Princess. The Great Gatsby. Prom in Flint, Michigan isn’t your average high school dance. I’ve been photographing Prom in Flint Michigan for the past three years and in 2016, I was the official prom portrait photographer at Northwestern High School. The students from NW are proud and strong, but also have undeniable odds stacked against them. At it’s core, this as a project that celebrates the fashion and spirit, with an undercurrent of struggle, and not the other way around. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check out Chapter 3 of ‘Flint is a place’. PROM! Link in bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #flintisaplace
