A Moment of Joy
Born and raised in the DMV I have always had an affinity for arts and social issues. Early experiments with film photography sparked my photography interest; but I rarely saw the images that represented my authentic experience. Upon founding Photos By Roux I have been inspired to document, showcase, and appreciate the struggles and successes of those who are continuously oppressed in order to raise awareness and awe of their unique beauty.
The purpose of this image is to transport the viewer to a specific moment in time; I want them to feel the joy and peace of that day to embrace the beauty of life in the present moment; the warmth of the sun as it warms us, the cool breeze coming off the water caressing our skin, and the sound of music filling our ears.
