Since April of 2020 I have been working on a personal project titled "COVID19 in Black America" which focuses on Covid19 in the Black communities of Philadelphia, and how it disproportionately affects the Black and brown community compared to other communities. I am now entering into stage two of the project, where I will focus on people from my community who experienced the affects of Covid19. My intention is to capture environmental portraits and share their stories of the battle to recover. "Princeton University" is an on going project focused on high achieving young Black Men attending Ivy League schools. Portraits of Family Caregivers of People with Alzheimer's/dementia, which I began in 2001 focused on family caregivers, the challenges they face living with a person with Alzheimer's disease and the love they share. The Alzheimer's project was in response to my father Raymond W. Holman Sr. dying with dementia in the summer of 2001. The studio portraits are or were family caregivers. My intention was to bring attention to family caregivers on an international level. I did not realize in 1997 when I became my father's caregiver how it would affect my career. I became so engulfed in making certain my father was okay, I literally forgot about myself. So there was about a ten year period where I forgot about photography to figure out who I was again. I am a active member of American Society of Media Photographers and Diversifyphoto. E-mail me for rates on private portrait commission sessions.
My moral obligation is to capture the image that tells the story of a particular moment in time.
