“i feel like being a black man in america, there are a lot of expectations that are put on you. expectations about the way you should act in public, the way you should express your sexuality, the way you should dress — and it can often be a lot of pressure,” says 21-year-old photographer, director and student myles loftin.
“but i also think that being a black man in america means that there’s a lot of possibility. at least right now i’m seeing a lot of possibility for myself and for the members of my community to exist freely. and i feel like we’re really taking advantage of that right now in a really positive way.”
