Hi everyone. A couple of months ago @showtime asked me to come to #Chicago to photograph the actors of The Chi @shothechi. Yesterday, the first promo images dropped. This was the most rewarding project in my career so far and I loved every moment of it. I'm super thankful to everyone who made this opportunity a reality. 2020, let's keep the blessings moving forward.

I love my job. I get to spend time with some of the most amazing, courageous, inspiring people in the world, and then make a portrait of them. That’s me with @indyamoore, I couldn’t begin to describe how much love and light they have for life. Thank you for spending time with me 🙏🏾 (and yes, we killed the shoot 😁)

I'm honored to have my work 'Full Prayer, Empty Promise' ‘Tithes’ and ‘Oldheads’ (all 2019) accompany Patricia Cohen's 'What Reparations for Slavery Might Look Like in 2019' on The New York Times' website and in print on Sunday. The additional pieces are ‘Migration’ and ‘Young and Free’, which were made during the course of the assignment. One huge special shoutout goes to Brent Lewis, Business Photo Editor at the NYT. Thank you my dude, this was an awesome assignment and I enjoyed working with you on this important piece. Link will be in the bio, but here it is for later: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/23/business/economy/reparations-slavery.html #nytimes #slavery #reparations #ifnotnowwhen #shawntheodore #collage
