QUEENS

Flashback post:  March 2014.  This was my first time visiting the new Anacostia Arts Center in S.E., D.C.  I came to capture some videos and photos of the event for my good friend “Mr. Briggs”.  I ended up meeting several great people that night, whom  I still keep in contact with and have developed great partnerships with.  This was my second time hearing several of the “queens” that night (i.e., Tamika Love Jones & Violet Marley), but a first hearing Maimouna Youssef.  I was intrigued by her delivery, vocals and lyrics;  particularly her cover for Lorde’s “Royals.”  Her version is re-entitled “We’re Already Royal” (Check out the video)!  What an empowering woman, great singer, writer, and lyricist.

Here are a few photos and a video link.

Queens for Kings

I LOVE live music and enjoy capturing the passion of this art in my photographs. I love working with independent artists and introducing myself to new sounds and underground talent. For Father’s Day, a few local D.C. artists gave tribute to fathers/ “kings” and brought down the house!

That night, I had the pleasure of capturing photos and video of the soulful sounds of Violet Marley, Andaiye, Tamika Love Jones, Ayanna Gregory and Afi Soul. These women have amazing talent and gracious personalities. It was a pleasure to be in great company and enjoy great music!
