I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings
"Second Hand Smoke is a photographic body of work that considers censorship and its multi-layered effects on society by using the metaphor of rising smoke to represent literature that was banned and/or burned because it honored individualism or challenged the status quo. In addition, the smoke evokes the individual characters within stories who come together as well as oppose one another within their specific literary narratives—story and characters intertwined. Each piece is titled for a book that has been targeted by authoritarian leadership."
