Freelance Photographer, Bryon Summers is on a mission to show black men love in the form of photography.
The Prince George’s County, Maryland native launched a photo series titled “We Love You” in an effort to dispel the negative stereotypes surrounding black men. His goal is to capture 1,000 black men and boys around the country then flood the internet with their images. So far the results are beautiful.
After the killings of Philando Castille and Alton Sterling, he decided to turn his frustration into action.
“This is as much an art project as it is a form of protest,” he told HuffPost. “It’s creative, nonviolent, and has potential to last for generations if not forever. It’s aiming to change the current narrative. It’s uplifting. It’s empowering and beautiful.”
Yet another beautiful project born from injustice.
