I chose this idea because while I walked past the quad one day this art piece really stood out to me and made me think. In America, we often tend to forget that there is a whole world out there and that there are many unresolved social issues worldwide.
With these pictures, I hope to communicate how important it is to not be willfully ignorant of the world and the issues present in other countries. It is important to be aware of the problems and discrimination present between different races, classes, genders, and identities of people.
Although I think that this project was pretty successful in communicating what I wanted it to, this project would have been more effective if I was able to photograph actual acts of injustice that I saw happening in Long Beach or else where in America.
Another idea that I would love to explore would be climate change due to pollution caused by humans.
