20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Love Blooms in Every Color

During the 2020 riots, I had an idea to photograph these beauties together among the flowers, like a beautiful garden. I wanted to do this years ago when watching my daughter play on the playground with kids of every race, just playing and laughing without the hardness and evil of the world telling them they shouldn't play together. I never acted on that idea, but during 2020 I felt this would be the perfect time to show that love blooms in every color - like a beautiful garden, or the color wheel - all the colors work together to form a beautiful masterpiece called life!
