If you're not familiar with the stunning photography of James C. Lewis, you simply must check it out! I've long been a fan of his ability to capture spiritual icons in a powerful and contemporary way. His collections include an "Icons of the Bible" series--with all black models--my favorite, the Yoruba African Deities (Lukumi/Santeria) and a social justice series "Naked Black Justice." This last one is particularly poignant at this time.
A little closer to home, his models for the "Icons of Bible" collection included the 90-year-old grandmother of a good friend of mine plus 2 of her aunts. The grandmother portrayed Sarah, wife of Abraham, and her aunts (real-life sisters) portrayed sisters Mary and Martha, who were sisters of Lazarus, the man Jesus raised from the dead.
I find such inspiration and beauty in Lewis' work, and I wanted to highlight him here as another way to amplify the message that Black Lives Matter.
