"Russell Lee, Negro boys on Easter morning in the southside, Chicago (1941)"
Fascinated with this photograph, no matter how often I’ve come across it in my lifetime, it always takes me back to this Deborah Willis interview where she discusses the beauty in African-American imagery and the importance of documenting. Inspired by Deb Willis, the Lost in Urbanism blog is my personal attempt to highlight the same beauty through imagery of the black and brown. 
Also, as the creator of Sunday Kinfolk, a platform used for storytelling, I’ve recently referenced a call for submissions to create a collective story for anyone who would like to submit their documentary, portrait and street photography from this upcoming Easter weekend. I’ll use the photographs to create and curate a collective story about our style, personal stories and traditions as a way to show just how interconnected we are as a culture, no matter where we’re located. Even if, this is not a holiday that you celebrate.
Answers to a couple of the common questions I’ve received: 
1. Do I have to be a professional or an aspiring photographer? Not at all. I’ve posted so many photographs from people who have just stumbled upon photography, it’s unbelievable. I just want you to document your stories, our stories, perhaps your commute .. maybe your way to the store, time with family, before/after service, hair salon, barbershop.. wherever, just document. 
2. Film or Digital? Black and White or Color? All of the aforementioned. 
I’ll accept up to 5 submissions per contributor through May 11th. Edit as necessary and email them to sundaykinfolk [at] gmail.com .. Please also include your name, location of the photograph, subjects (as needed) and link to your tumblr and/or website.  
Looking forward to creating our collective story.
