"This documentation becomes an investigation of the relationship between the artist and the photographer. And even greater than that the Black Woman Artist places trust in my eye to respect her likeness and is able to see herself in me while capturing her.
In my documentation of her work, I am also documenting myself, as an artist and the possibilities of what a Black Woman Artist can look like for others to find far after we have gone and the work has been made."
