  •  "I’m seeing the Black body as a state in flux. The survival of Black life in America is reliant upon ingenuity—knowing when to adapt, transform, or stand your ground. The series you’re referring to is not portraiture, really, but examples of how to shift around death…Some of us will merge with the obstacle, some will break through, some will wear it, etc. There are so many ways we survive, and in the resilience we can become more expansive—even more human, I think." —Yashua Klos
