Walking through the ARTivity on the Green urban park early Friday evening, I met Em, a graphic artist working on an elaborate pen an ink drawing. The park sits on N. Liberty St, one block over from Trade St, the heart of the Downtown Arts District.

I’m starting a series of street photography captures from my visit to the Downtown Art District Association (DADA) Gallery Hop in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. This young street artist conveys an important and very relevant message!

I was photographing some outdoor sculptures for a friend when this young fellow walked by and asked if I would take his picture. “Sure”, I said, “just play yourself.”
He introduced himself as Joseph, and mentioned he’d like to make it in the music biz. I wanted the image to be something he could use to promote himhelf. Perhaps a bit stylized for “street photography”, so I’ll refer to it as a “stylized street portrait.”
