Black History Tribute

Lest we forget, lest we ever forget

Blood bleeds from our own hands.

Lest we live with regrets, live bitter regret

Blood on the leaves, seeps into the land

Seeds fed on the sweat of black brows

Blood bled from fallen angels on ominous clouds

Gaves whitewashed they forgot

But black history marched on

Stained and ingrained in mind from hand

So much we overcame, so few understand

Lynched.

Burned.

Murdered.

Buried and forgotten in shallow graves

Chained and enslaved

A little change makes it all stay the same

New chains, economic new slaves

Graves whitewashed they forgot

But black history kept on marching on

Sophisticated slavery and invisible shackles

The war wages on, battle after battle

How will you experience emancipation 

When the mansion you lust for,

was built on the damned plantation

Graves whitewashed they forgot

But black history keeps marching on.

Our first night shoot through the eye of Harness. it was quite amazing how we worked with little to almost no light considering the fact that our photography solely depends on natural light, resulting in somewhat of an opaque feeling in the shots, well that’s how it feels to us, and now it feels like we blowing our own horn, we hope the feeling of opacity is mutual if not better than how we feel.

When the sun died we made love.
