Spectatin' (2015)

This series follows my journey to Ferguson, Missouri during the one year commemoration weekend in honor of Michael Brown Jr.'s death. I spent the week photographing people in the Canfield Green apartment complex, the neighborhood where Brown was shot and killed. As I spent more time there, I noticed a pattern in the people who came. Soon tour buses, and people from all over the Mid-West were coming and bringing their children. A site of commemoration and remembrance became a site of tourism and spectatorship. What does it do to someone's memory when people are more interested in taking a selfie or posing than learning about the person's life? Or is taking a selfie and posing a new way of remembrance and respect?
