"We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children"
These are the words etched into the hearts of White Nationalists around the country. The United States has a long history of White Nationalism, a history that has evolved over the course of the country's existence. Since 2012 I have been travelling the US learning how organizations that describe themselves as white civil rights groups, operate. I've managed to distinguish between how the National Socialist Movement (NSM), a large US based National Socialism (Nazi) organization differs from the KKK, how they're similar, and how they operate on the same wavelengths in an attempt to achieve a similar outcome. This project will further seek to explore how White Nationalism has changed and is constantly changing. The Movemement as it was in the 1800s is different than it was in the 1920s, is different than it was in the 1960s, and is different than it was 20 years ago. The face of White Nationalism has changed and the conversation on race relations in the US cannot simply only be taught via textbooks or computer screens; it must reach out beyond words to tell the story of the past, present, and future.
After completing a Bachelors program in Political Science at St. Joseph's College in 2011, I continued on to the Photojournalism and Documentary Photography program at the International Center of Photography in New York City, where I completed the one year certificate program in 2012.
I have since been working on various projects ranging from White Nationalism to the Mexican/American border, while stringing for Newsday, the New York Times, and others.
My work has appeared in and clients include publications like Reuters, The New York Times, Newsday, Stern Magazine, Al Jazeera America, Wall Street Journal, VICE, CNN, Huffington Post
