Not tired yet is a 13 feet mural piece honoring the ongoing work, sacrifice and power of Black women , Black Trans women, cis gender who have led the protests and societal change in NYC and beyond.

Black women and Black Trans women have been at the forefront of profound change in the United States for centuries, from historical figures like Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks and Marsha P Johnson. In the summer of 2020, they were again at that forefront, leading many of the protests in NYC following the death of George Floyd and demanding justice for Black Lives lost at the hands of police. They are represented in a lush live greenery, in all their strength and beauty, removed from the intensity and pressure of the protests, where I met and photograph them all; a representation of a force of renewal for our society, with acceptance, tolerance, equality for all race and genders.

The project comes  with video interviews of each activists:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClqOycq4GmwGi1axraJjh8A/featured

Exhibited at the Bronx River Art Center - May 22 -July 17, 2021

Sans Aucun Répis


Une creation photographique murale de 4 mètres honorant l'activisme, le sacrifice et le pouvoir des femmes noires, des femmes transgenres noires, du genre cis qui ont dirigé les manifestations et le changement sociétal à New York et au-delà.

Les femmes noires et les femmes noires trans sont à l'avant-garde d'un changement profond aux États-Unis depuis des siècles, avec des personnalités historiques comme Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks et Marsha P Johnson. À l'été 2020, elles étaient à nouveau à l'avant-garde, menant de nombreuses manifestations à New York après la mort de George Floyd et exigeant justice pour les Black Lives perdues aux mains de la police. Chaque portrait pris dans un mur vegetal, montrant leur force et leur beauté, éloignés de l'intensité et de la pression des manifestations, où je les ai tous rencontrés durant mon travail documentaire. Elles représentent la force de renouveau: l'acceptation, la tolérance, l'égalité pour toutes les races et les genres.

Le projet est accompagné d'interviews vidéo de chaque militant : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClqOycq4GmwGi1axraJjh8A/featured

Exposé au Bronx River Art Center - du 22 mai au 17 juillet 2021
