Jeremiah Lewis – Photography

Artist Statement: The person currently in the photo is my little brother. A 13 year old African American into the world. The one thing in this photo that I see hopeful is His life and growth. To see him grow and begin his story and to see his future. For a young African American into this society I want his goals to push away the obstacles that the world throws at him. I want him to believe, dream, but also hope.
