"The Joy of Color" - Solo art exhibit 

Kim Cole Real Estate Aug 27 - Oct 27, 2021

Joy is such an underrated emotion. Photography is often expected to be dark and moody in order to have emotion and depth, but after this past year, I think we’ve had enough of that. 

I wanted to center my inaugural exhibit on the Joy of Color - both literally with the use of bright, bold colors - as well as figuratively by only showcasing women and non-binary people of color. 

Marginalized communities are often showcased through the lens of their suffering, which I find limiting and one-dimensional. I wanted to highlight the beauty and joy I see in the people around me and celebrate the rich colors, textures, and skin tones of the wonderful individuals I have the pleasure of photographing. 

I hope you enjoy the show and feel a little bit lighter after seeing it.

All proceeds from this show go directly to benefit the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Stop AAPI Hate. To purchase prints, please contact me here
