I am a product of the Boy’s Club. As a child, participating I the Boy’s club where I lived, I was able to experience many things. One of them was photography. Growing up I was a fan of Gordon Park’s work. I always enjoyed taking pictures and looking back at what I had seen: the memories of the good times. But it never became more than a hobby. One night I was playing around with my camera on the beach and took several night shots. My wife loved the pictures and said I should sell them. I smiled to let her know I heard her and thought nothing of it. A few months later, knowing I love art, my wife gave me two really nice prints. I loved them and asked her where she got them. She told me they came from my desktop. They were two of the pictures she told me I should sell.
So began my career as a fine art photographer.
I went to a rally to stop police brutality in Washington, DC, and as always, I took a photographic journal of the experience. A few months later my wife insisted I take advantage of an opportunity to show my pictures at a small marketplace. That opened the door for the chance meeting of a lady who put us in contact with a man who had an art gallery. Two months later we hung our first major exhibit, “And Justice For All”, depicting the experience of being a part of a march for change.
So began my life as a Citizen Witness.
Sankofa is an African word, when loosely translated, mean look into the past and retrieve the gems and bring them forward. I chose the name Sankofa for my business because photography is one of the good things from my youth. There is a fond memory associated with each of my photographs, giving credence to the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
So, Welcome to Sankofa Photography
