Working at a place where there's safe spaces for minorities to connect and learn more about our experiences, is a privilege and in todays working remote world a great way to build community. Really happy with what the team came up with, happy to be able to help through the process with designing the titles, give direction with the concept and storytelling. Beyond proud of the team and all the partners who helped make this beautiful idea a reality.
Hispanic Heritage is also América’s Heritage. Latinos in America can feel like they’re constantly trying to both embrace where they come from and assimilate to the place where they live. But Latinos have helped shape this country in ways that go beyond what we usually perceive as just cultural influences. During Hispanic Heritage month, we traveled across the country taking portraits of the Latino community to celebrate what brings us together. Our accents, our roots, and the place we all call home.
