“Go Witness”

They were saying to each other that today “He has risen from the dead.” It was a very quiet conversation between two church sisters but you could feel the excitement in the Spring air. 
I stood downwind photographing their joy. I watched as the cold gentle breeze picked up their words like the falling blossoms or the minute pollens, to spread the message of this morning’s sermon to their communities. I pulled back, conscious that I was snapping the image of two elderly sage, repeating and  re-plaiting the strands of belief, to be taught, rebranded, and reaffirmed in our lineage. #oggl_ig #blackportraiture #eastersunday #streetportrait #streetphotography #bedstuyportrait #brooklynportrait #brooklynphotography #makeportrait #makeportraits #igers #instamood #sonya7r (at Mt.
