Paper Boy Prince
From late 2020 to mid 2021, I volunteered for the campaign of Paper Boy Prince, a candidate running in the election for mayor of NYC. While volunteering for this campaign I followed stories surrounding the campaign and documented what surrounded the candidate.

That being said, my time on the Paper Boy Prince campaign was not completely sunshine and roses. My eyes were opened to the nuance of politics campaigns up and close, and I learned the importance of keeping an objective view for the sake of telling a story. The photos above show Paper being protested by Qween B. Amor, a political advocate / performance artist. This scene is from a “smoke out” facilitated by Paper Boy, something they have done around the city to protest the imprisonment of thousands of black men and women who are behind bars for marijuana, although it is legal (to carry up to 3 ounces) in NYC.
