RED by Morgan is officially launched and excited is an understatement. It took a while to get this going, but life is a journey, right? (You can read a bit more about mine here). Through this journey, I now understand how everything has come full circle to shape the person I am today and help me realize my purpose. How my experiences have influenced my vision and the mark I hope to leave on the world… and more specifically Detroit. It’s my mission to capture the stories, culture, life and beauty of Detroit through photography.
It started as a hobby; taking a few pictures throughout my day, uploading them to social media sites or simply saving them on my laptop. Soon those photos began to speak to me and, as I discovered, to others as well. I found them as a way to show Detroit in a different light. I didn't always have this love for the city, but as I experienced life and the ups and downs it brings, I realized that our stories are not that different. Since then, I've made it my mission to show people and the world what we are really about. There is beauty in our history and beauty in the comeback. This blog aims to uncover these things.
I’ll also be highlighting some of the businesses, people and organizations who make an impact in the city’s revitalization through their work and telling their stories. Ultimately, I hope this site serves as inspiration to think about our neighborhoods and this city in a different way or perhaps inspire people to determine how they can contribute to the rebirth. It feels great knowing I am in the place I am meant to be. Thank you for joining me on this journey and I look forward to what’s to come!
