Jackson, Mississippi // September 2018
There are a lot of people in Jackson, and in Mississippi, who are seeking to better our capital city & our state. The means look different because we are all different-- unique giftings and passions and callings-- but the desire to serve and to love is the same. It's made a huge impact on me to get to know some of these people over the last year. I'm grateful to them & inspired by them. There is hope.
Reflecting on when I used to work as a baker in New York. I lived in the ghetto part of town, and I would have to walk across the train tracks every morning to get to the bakery, which was located in the affluent part of town. I remember the walk took about 30 minutes, and I would have to trek through blizzards wearing a Leos T-shirt and baker pants because I couldn’t even afford a used jacket from goodwill. It was fun though because life’s this trippy adventure and you’re just happy to be experiencing something so foreign. The group house I was living in was surreal as well, because the guy rooming to the left of me sold weed, the guy to my right sold fishscale coke, and the two other guys down the hall sold meth and heroine, and we all had to share a single bathroom, which was oddly the worst part of it all. I paid $175 a week, which I thought was strange. The guy who owned the building was this really old guy named Frank Prince who had a catheter and I’m pretty sure he was some big ex convict. The bakery boss (Pat) sent me this T-shirt recently, thanks pat. I still remember the street name, it was called Despatch drive. Life is trippy 🍞🍪🥧🎂 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #35mm#35mmstreetphotography#35mmfilm#dslr#nikon#happy#bigbutts#vsco#rawfood#snapseed#nintendo#tabby#hasselblad#leica#hypebeast#nogi#velvia#heyarnold#ilovecats#cosplay#analoguefeatures#lookslikefilm#cowboybebop#minimalisttattoos#sigma#cats#noctilux#iceland#500cm#rawurbanshots
