“Bob Moses’s civil rights activist work in the 1960s and his continued dedication to youth and education is inspiring. I’m a photographer working in and around cities, exploring the human condition. In these images, I meditate on the layered truth of the sixties, but also look to the future. These works depict contemporary times, but, as you can see, we are still marching and fighting for a just society, standing on the shoulders of giants.” — Andre Wagner
