In this new series, Will Smith and Kate Gahimer explore the experiences and emotions of men in the African-American community surrounding racial injustice in the year 2020. The project began with in-depth conversations which led to themes surrounding frustration, sadness, despair, but an optimistic
outlook for the future.
A series of photographs were taken of each person in an intimate and raw environment to highlight the emotions they felt on a daily basis during the tumultuous year that was 2020. The work seeks to promote and encourage vulnerable conversation based on deep introspection on how we see individuals, particularly, those of another race.
