HUMAN Banner.jpg

...the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being.
— Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Why “HUMAN”?

Throughout our history we see evidence of what Solzhenitsyn accurately and concisely stated.
We see evidence of tremendous good and horrendous evil. In moments of quiet honesty we may even realize that line cuts through our own hearts as well.

At times, in our minds, we’ve convinced ourselves that other people are less than human. Maybe we believe all people are less than human? When we lose the knowledge that we’re created by God His image (Genesis 1:26–27) we lose a foundational truth to our identity.

Identity

Back in 2014 I did a self-portrait exploring the foundational components of my identity and how they contrast with some of the slanderous labels attributed to black people in recent centuries.

I knew this would be a concept I would continue to explore, but I wasn’t quite sure how it would evolve.

The following gallery is a collection of some concepts I’ve explored.


So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
— Genesis 1:27
