My DLGN sister Kayla Reefer has recently launched her official photography/videography website that displays all of her most prized possessed photos & videos that she shoots & edits on her own. One of the things that makes her special is that she is a one 'woman' band. Kaylah is true to creating art & the work she does create reflects her as a person exactly the same.
Below is a video shot/edited by Kayla presented by BRITTSENSE of their journey to Nickerson Gardens in Watts, California. Now if you listen to the news at all you'll know that Watts as of today is not the most friendly or comfortable of places to just go visit & have a good time. Well in this episode of Kayla's 'stories' - it clearly shows that is defined to actually be false. These are the types of interactions that happen on a daily basis throughout the crime & danger that is subject to happen within these types of neighborhoods but the world is conditioned to just see 'us' one way. This is a beautiful, organic way to showcase the culture of lower income communities today. We may not have the level of unity we once had before but there is still some genuine hardworking people who love each other that only we as people can showcase to the world when no one else will.
Below are the editorial photos that collaborate with the video above. Kaylah does an great job at really captivating the energy of Watt's very own Nickerson Gardens Community that doesn't display negativity.
Be sure to follow the creative & enlightening journey to what is bound to come on her website
