Plastic off the Sofa

Images captured at the Beyoncé Renaissance  World Tour – New Orleans  9/27/2023

Beyoncé’s Renaissance album is a collection of anthems about freeing yourself and embracing your true self, rather than conforming to societal expectations. After her concert in New Orleans, I’m still processing the thoughtful visuals and messages that aim to unlock mental chains and encourage personal growth outside of prescribed roles. For me, the album is about transcending social norms like racism, colorism, and homophobia to become your best self. Beyoncé acknowledges America’s problems but advocates for positive change through activism and self-expression. Her message is a call to let people live freely and authentically. The album inspires shedding the plastic facade of perfection and just being yourself.

Battling the 500-Year Flood: Baton Rouge’s Resilience in the Face of Disaster

(image on right) Baton Rouge Flooding Captured” by Mr. Don M. Green. Published in Bloomberg Business Week / August 2017

As a photographer, I knew I had to be there to document the 500-year flood that devastated Baton Rouge. I drove around the city and arrived at the Intersection of Winbourne and North Foster.

I knew I had to get on it when I saw rescue boats heading into the floodwaters. It wasn’t easy. The rescue boat was packed with people, and there wasn’t much room for me and my camera gear. But I managed to squeeze myself and my equipment onto the boat, and we set off into the floodwaters.
