"Odyssey" is a photo series and short film about a group of astronauts on their quest to a home they have never been, but always imagined: free of the "-isms" stemmed in anti-black systems. A home that's calling their spirit. However, when the travelers awake from an emergency crash landing, they are estranged and must find their way back to each other in hopes of obtaining what's been promised to them.

You stretch your hands and slowly gather your thoughts

Surrounded by wreckage in another world…

What was thought to be a pleasant childhood memory

In fact, was the ship ripping from the sky

What was thought to be you laying in the grass and the sky spinning

Was in fact, you coming to the fact that

you and your team

had an emergency landing

In the midst of your astral odyssey to other worlds

In search of a home you’ve envisioned, but knew existed

You look up and see multiple streaks in the sky

You all landed away from each other

This truth sinks in…

You strike the emergency flare.

“Are we still homeward bound??
