2019 Time Capsule
This is something I’m really excited about. Like many, with such an insane, unprecedented year, I had some projects fall to the wayside. But cream rises to the top and this Newspaper is now Reddi Whip.
Early in January, this Newspaper stood for progress and ownership. I think it still screams those things, but as we know, 2020 looks so much different than 2019 when this was conceptualized. But as we move forward towards a new future, I think it can be helpful, if not nostalgic, to look into the past. Those depicted in this Newspaper have seen a lot of change, too. Their stories are ever-evolving. Imagine what this year means to them. These beautiful souls are amongst the most marginalized people on the planet. In a year where health is wealth, their journeys faced jeopardization. And No Pride parade? While on a smaller scale, that’s a huge deal. I know I missed the sense of community felt Downtown each June. So, let’s look back on 2019, if only for a moment, and remember how it felt to see more people than ever before own their Power.
I also want to take a moment to shout out Greater Columbus Arts Council without whom and their grant program, this project would have been so much harder. And thank you to Rachel Sharkman and Taylor King for their help in realizing this and Thomas Lotozo for his help in closing this chapter. And, of course, the greatest appreciation for those before my lens, brave enough to help me tell their stories.
