RAD CREATIVE OF THE DAY: Photo-documentarian Brittani Sensabaugh captures forgotten communities with powerful 222Forgottencities project

July 20, 2016

Today’s RAD CREATIVE is Oakland-raised, NYC-based photographer and documentarian Brittani Sensabaugh. Sensabaugh’s unique documentary-style of photography and *222Forgottencities* project that documents, rather than depicts. That authentically captures the look, feel, and history of communities that have had little true life representation. “My Overall Mission is to Document Communities that have been forgotten and people who feel they have no voice. I Shoot to bring awareness towards the individuals living inside and Outside these areas by showing that WE all share the same Struggle and Love.” In doing so, Brittani has captured some truly stunning, powerful images that resonate deeply within their context. Check out some of my favorite photos by Sensabaugh down below.
