i am a stranger in a strange land here. shooting for LA commons at the watts tower jazz festival 9.25.11. i asked this black panther girl promoting a press conference at the county jail facility if i could take her photo, but i cropped her face. i don’t know why. she was very young and honest in her convictions. she read from her script like a telemarketer without taking a breath. she didn’t have to try, i was ready to listen. i want to believe that everybody likes jazz.
