I met Roy Miles at the Alternative Press Expo, back in October. He stopped at my booth and chatted with me for a while. I explained my 1001 Black Men project, and he let me snap a photo for later use. It was only later that I would learn that he was a puppeteer, toy designer, musician, and filmmaker. Whenever we cross paths I feel energized and inspired.

It is always a pleasure to read your story behind the portrait you’ve made. It’s a very personal approach. Btw I love the color of your background.
It’s great to hear from you! So glad you’re enjoying this part of my posts. Including the stories has really forced me to consider when and how I am noticing the Black men who’ve made their way into the series. It’s been very interesting for me to consider the power (and the limitations) of my own gaze.
PS: I’m glad you like the background.
