Flocking Together for Creative Youth
In a city strife with grief, pain and anger I took a chance on creating a foundation solely focused on young artists. In a world crippled by an unrelenting pandemic I took a chance on establishing a foundation where we shine the light on talented teens. Young people who deserve all the support and accolades even though their own family, neighbors and society may or may not provide it based off how they look. Minneapolis is my city. So, I know what you are thinking…the foundation I created somehow intertwines racial and social justice within its organization objectives. And this would be incorrect. I don’t discuss either of these in regard to my foundation as they are not the core of why the Bird Box Initiative Foundation is here. Art is – art transcends all of the ugly we’ve witnessed. Because art highlights the beauty of whatever medium the artist elects to use. Art is where you find commonality, peace, and understanding. Photographers use different tools than painters, but they are connected through artistic expression. And this is why I created the BBI, we need the artistic viewpoint of young people. That is their identity, their voice, and their way of navigating this crazy world. Commonality is not solely found on social media, and to reinforce the social aspect of being social the BBI conducts bi-annual (in-person) events where we invite our community, fellow business leaders, family and friends of the young artist(s), and anyone with two or four legs to join us in celebrating the artistry of a deserving young person. Because they are deserving of being reminded how special and unique they are. How no matter what the apps on their phone display, a “like” is nothing close to a “community.” We flock together for these young people because we recognize the value of support and encouragement. My passions for this are simply the regurgitation of what my own mother did for me. The moments she put myself, and my siblings in spaces to receive accolades for our unique artistic point of view. As an adult, I still remember those moments. They are stored in my soul and manifested into the creation of the Bird Box Initiative Foundation. I can’t guarantee that the BBI will do the same for the youth we work with, but it all starts with one moment. One moment to push them towards their passions. One moment to remind them it is okay to be your authentic self. And one moment to celebrate them in a way that they know, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are worth more. I wish I could say you could monetize worth, but you cannot. And this is why I am so passionate about my foundation. Because no dollar amount I spend is ever spent with regret, as I am spending it to better the life of a young person. To give them the stage to shine. They are worth every penny we use to create exhibitions and shows dedicated and focused on them. Locating, supporting and highlighting the creative youth in our community is what brings me true fulfillment. Their artistic point of view propels our foundation mission and inspires me each and every day. Because it serves as a constant reminder that no matter what is happening in my own community, country, or world we can connect and heal through art. So, yes, I did start a foundation in a city where tears are both visible and hidden but hope and creativity are alive and well. As it is all around the world. And our youth are manifesting that hope and creativity in ways/mediums unlike anything we’ve seen before. I, for one, am here to witness it, and to support it!
Artists Change the World
I’m a person of expanding passions. They seem to cycle, with a new emphasis every couple of years. But really they snowball and accumulate.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
Growing up, you could always find me in the corner somewhere, scouring through the pages of Vogue. Although it was mostly to ogle at the clothes that I would never be able to afford in a million years, I was also fascinated by the photography. The composition, the bright colors, and the interesting makeup and poses were all just so wonderful and amazing. And I couldn’t help but feel a spark of something looking at those images. All I knew was that it gave me the urge to do something just as cool as what I saw, thus beginning my obsession with photography.

The Colorscapes Masterclass
I fell in love with photography back in Fall of 2015. I was 15 years old at the time. I always had a fascination with the Universe and I thought it would be very cool to be able to capture photographs of the stars. I knew I wouldn't have much success with my phone camera at the time, so I did a little research on the internet to learn more about how I could start taking star photos with an actual camera. One of the first things I read about was this thing called a DSLR. At the time, I wasn't all too sure what that was. I knew it was a camera of some sort, but I had no clue why it was called a DSLR. Regardless of my lack of understanding or knowledge, I asked my parents if we had one and it just so happened that we did!
Elliott Erwitt – Most Popular Photographs
Elliott Erwitt is an American documentary photographer who is very well known for his satirical humor and wit, coming from all his ironic images. Moreover, he says, about his work, the most important thing is to see things and to have the ability to organize them in a picture. The trick is to react with humanity and a sense of humor combined, and hopefully, this will happen spontaneously. One of his biggest inspirations is dogs. We can see them in most of his images in different aspects. They are even a leading subject in five of his books. No matter what his work represents, realistic or surreal situations, monotonous or fanciful people, they are all unique and give joy to the eye or deep thoughts to the mind. Let's learn more about Elliott Erwitt's life and look at his most famous and iconic photographs of all time.

Features of most popular Google camera (Gcam APK)
Never miss a moment with Google Camera, and take fantastic pictures and videos using features such as Portrait, Night Sight, and the video stabilization modes. The camera app has been aided with hardware accelerators to perform its image processing. The first generation of Pixel phones used Qualcomm's Hexagon DSPs and Adreno GPUs to accelerate image processing. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 (but not the Pixel 3a) include the Pixel Visual Core to aid with image processing. The Pixel 4 introduced the Pixel Neural Core.
The Stories Behind my Top 10 Photographs of Children
There's something extremely rewarding about photographing children. For me, every photograph I take of a child is like reliving a part of my childhood again. Not many subjects draw the attention of viewers like the curious eyes and the unadulterated smiles of little children.
