Care and community take different forms after a painful year of plague and protest.
By Gioncarlo Valentine and Elliott Jerome Brown Jr.
After a year of disproportionate loss from the pandemic and the continuous threat of police violence, on top of centuries of discrimination and disenfranchisement, what does healing look like for Black Americans? The photographers Gioncarlo Valentine and Elliott Jerome Brown Jr. traveled to Virginia, the Carolinas, Louisiana and Georgia looking for answers to that question — reaching out to friends and family, artists and organizations along the way. They sought to document the rituals and relationships that create space for joy, solace and restoration.
