Currently an MFA candidate of the University of Arkansas’ Photography and Studio Art program, he received his BFA in Photography and Digital Media from the University of Houston. His work We Are Still Searching…, currently on view at UH’s Louise J. Moran Fine Arts Courtyard, uses the medium of collage to revisit the Great Migration of six million African Americans out of the South, as well as explores the current Re-Migration to the South. The 14-foot-tall collage includes items such as old magazine advertisements from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s as well as billboard images passed by Black Americans along their north/southward routes.
