Newley retired, I am able to see & spend quality time with my Grandma Cathy & even have her step out her comfort zone a bit or at least do things she hasn't done in years. The idea of this shoot was to display the beautiful heritage that still keeps The Jungles in good light. My grandma can tell you any story you need to hear about this place & that can be from the days when The Jungles was full of white people or when Waka Flocka decided to shoot the Hard In The Paint video right out front of our building. Nothing can come in our out of here without Grandma Cathy knowing of it & that's the honest to God truth.
So to those who aren't afraid to up & leave their struggling establishments & still find hope in the non-beauty society display of their neighborhoods & upbringings, this shoot was inspired by people like you & my Grandma Cathy. The world needs more of you & personally, I can't thank you enough for giving home an even deeper definition.
