I met Ike downtown to help support him as an artist. Ike is a singer based out of Grand Rapids, and looking, eventually to move to somewhere with a bigger music scene. I always love meeting strangers and hearing their story, long or short. Because Ike is several years younger than me I felt like I was with a passed student of mine [lol, sorry Ike].
I asked him to bring any signs he had made from any protest he had gone to as well to give more historical references of the time period as well but also to give a voice through the photographs. This session was a ton of fun and is the main reason I got into photography in the first place.
