hi my name is darnell staley thank you for having me um yeah i got one of my photos up the ruth carter exhibit and um stoked um i started doing pictures when i was i was in a bit of a transition so it was like i was doing music first and then i met lynnell and he was just like you’re only doing one thing like no there’s multiple ways of hunting you know i’m saying and it was just like he gave me the tools and experience and the knowledge to kind of just be like teaching man to fish you can eat for a lifetime so it was just like i got into photography when i turned 23 and it was just like a whole new world from there [Music] put this sign together and we all kind of just like rallied together to go up to boston and kind of just like you know we’re here we’re part of this movement and it’s just like we just need to find that level ground of just getting back to peace even if we have to fight for it [Music] so first and foremost the experience of being able to just document that like i was telling somebody who would ask me like what was this like for you it was pretty much from reading about it to actually seeing it so it was just like wow being able to see how that like looking at it in a text perspective to seeing it in real life to actually seeing people marching and fighting for rights and you know just there in the moment so it’s just it’s mind-blowing like i’ve never witnessed anything like that in my life what caught me was just like the motion of it so it’s like they’re all moving towards this one common goal of you know seeing it through to the end you know what i’m saying and it’s like love is pain in its rarest form and we need to understand that to grasp vulnerability because we can only grow as people and individuals if we have these conversations if the dialect is being brought up you know what i’m saying like we have these one-on-one conversations about all the issues and things that we face as far as just problems life events and for me it’s just like being able to visually see it and trying to capture that story of how it’s being painted as far as just like the messaging of it if i could just leave you with one quote um overall this experience and journey has been amazing like i say life is a gift and um life is a journey and i’m here for the ride so i’m going through this process and i’m glad that i’m meeting people along the way to help impact and shape like life decisions the courses and if you want a gift fall in love with your presence that’s that i’m gonna leave it at that if you want to get fall in love with your presence and i’m signing out [Music]
