Ongoing coverage of the Black Lives Matter in Queens, NY. (Specifically the neighborhoods of Astoria and Long Island City.)

Like so many others, this past week I have been feeling intense anger, sadness, and heartbreak all at once. I have been attending local Black Lives Matter events in my neighborhood and at bordering neighborhoods. I am attending these events as a person first, and a photographer second. I have greatly debated with myself whether or not I have the right to be making images at these events. Upon attending the first vigil and hearing the frustrations expressed by people of color at these events at the lack of media coverage and representation of peaceful BLM events, I have decided to continue photographing what’s going on in my Queens community. I am doing so sensitively and non-invasively, while many capable and talented photographers of color are photographing the movements in other boroughs. This is my ongoing coverage. Black Lives Matter.
