Raven is filled with wanderlust and a desire to get out of her comfort zone. She is devoted to experiencing life beyond the digital screen and beyond any expectation. Her mind and body are in constant motion. She gets lost-- and ultimately found-- in the creative process. It is through artistic expression that she finds reason, beauty, and a profound understanding of cultures and her heritage and the human condition. When she's not behind the camera— she's exploring her culinary interest, within the kitchen and out; amongst a mess of art supplies or nose deep in a book.
She finds comfort in her constant state of evolution.
Raven's always seen photography as a two way mirror-- as an opportunity . A tool to transcend language, boundaries and share individual realities and experiences. To transport viewer and even herself; to be engrossed in empathy and make a conscious decision to learn, question and realize something about the themselves, society or the global community.
(Raven is a Colombian African American creative, residing in New York City.)
