Love Me Love Me Not : Eugene Byrd III

It’s always a pleasure capturing the exhibitions of @byrdeyeviews The transformation of a space brings you into a different world and feel. Looking at art is one thing but being immersed in the atmosphere takes the appreciation to another level. Especially when it resonates with different elements we have experienced our whole life and can relate to growing up.

It was funny watching some people laughing at the pieces because they knew what it meant then watching others have such a serious confused look on their face, lost in the sauce.

A daughter said to her mother… ma we have all those products in our house what does that mean?

Seeing people come back into the space multiple times to just be… felt like they knew this was the one for them, for us.

It feels good to be seen.

I’ll be real, recording people with mask on and not being able to see em smile was awkward. I had to remember what some of yall looked like smiling. Hoping my enthusiasm made it pass ya mask looking for cheeks to rise and eyes to squint with a smile. I’ve been reading eyes and body language for a minute so that part isn’t unfamiliar but still I can’t wait till this phase of life becomes history. Either way I appreciate the vibes and the familiar feeling of people peopling.

Shoutout to @realplantsy for setting up the greenery and elevating the space with life as well as @kayashoots for providing the perfect chair! It all came together just right as it always does!
