The How / We Are Connected / Photo Exploration Project is a geographic portrait and photography series of a diversity of cultural performing arts artists from various cultures AND COUNTRIES.

The project will present a visual and educational perspective on cultural identity, portraying the similarities and connections shared between diverse ethnical cultures and races, and the traditional principles of their practices. 

THWACPEP is my cultural exploration through imagery. Throughout my time as a professional photographer within the performing arts field, I developed an appreciation for the anthropological weight traditional folk & ethnic dance carries. This series features performing artists from Phoenix, NYC, and Los Angeles, a list of cultural epicenters that grows as the series continues.

Join us on our journey and exploration as we meet and reconnect with some amazing artists and wonderful cultures.
