Indigenous-Black communities

Documenting the Indigenous and Black communities.

I want to document the indigenous community and the Black community in NYC and Mexico through photographs and video. Some of the photographs will be exhibited in a gallery in NYC and in Mexico. I’m raising money to buy a photography camera, lenses and for the photography exhibitions.

I have been already documenting (through photographs and videos) the indigenous community and the Black/African-American community in “The Capital of the World” (NYC) for a few years. My photography and videography work will be expanded to include indigenous people and Black people from different regions/countries that live in NYC.

The first indigenous who inhabited what is now the City of New York were the Lenape, an Algonquin people. New York City is the largest city in the United States of America and also has the largest indigenous population.

African-American history starts in the 16th century, with Africans forcibly taken as slaves to Spanish America, and in the 17th century with African slaves taken to English colonies in North America. The New York City metropolitan area is home to the largest Black community in the country.

My photography work will show the diversity of the indigenous community and the Black community living in “The City that Never Sleeps” and some parts of Mexico.

Documentando la comunidad Indígena y la comunidad Negra.

Quiero documentar la comunidad Indígena y la comunidad Negra en la Ciudad de Nueva York y algunas partes de México a través de fotografías. Algunas de las fotografías serán expuestas en una galería en la Ciudad de Nueva York y en México. Estoy recaudando dinero para comprar una cámara de fotografía, lentes y para tener las exposiciones de fotografía.

Ya he estado documentando (a través de fotografías y videos) a la comunidad Indígena y la comunidad Afro-Americana en “La Capital del Mundo” (NYC) por algunos años. Mi trabajo de fotografía se ampliará para incluir a personas Indígenas y personas de la raza negra de diferentes regiones/países.

Los primeros Indígenas que habitaron lo que ahora es la Ciudad de Nueva York fueron los Lenape, un pueblo Algonquin. La Ciudad de Nueva York es la ciudad más grande de los Estados Unidos de América y también tiene la mayor población Indígena.

La historia afroamericana se inicia en el siglo 16, con las personas Africanas tomadas por la fuerza como esclavos a la América española, y en el siglo 17 con las personas Africanas tomadas por la fuerza como esclavos y llevadas a las colonias inglesas en Norteamérica. El área metropolitana de la ciudad de Nueva York es el hogar de la comunidad Afroamericana más grande en el país.

Mi trabajo de fotografía mostrará la diversidad de la comunidad Indígena y personas de la raza negra en “La Ciudad que Nunca Duerme” y algunas partes de México.

Sunday, July 12, 2015. New York City – Yesterday, Saturday, July 11, I attended the community event, “AGING FIERCELY WHILE TRANS.” The open forum was presented by Visual AIDS and the NYC Trans Oral History Project. I videotaped the event. Parts of the conversation will be used for the documentary about Phoenix Nastasha Russell. Phoenix is a Black Trans woman living in New York City. On Facebook, the organizers said “Amidst ongoing violence and increased visibility for the trans community is the truth of the importance of trans lives. Often missing in conversations between both the great heights of visibility and the epic lows of violence and neglect are trans and gender non-conforming folks who have lived long, storied and rich lives.” Photo by Javier Soriano/http://www.JavierSoriano.com/
