Artist Talk: Roosevelt Mansfield

Roosevelt about who he is as an artist, how Jamel Shabazz and Gordon Parks have influenced his work, and his personal philosophies around photography as an art form.

He urges his audience to use art as an outlet during trying times, and to share experiences, talents, and creativity as a form of resistance and care for yourself.

Roosevelt says, “This is not about camera settings…it’s about learning yourself; it’s about not being afraid to try things; it’s about using what you  have and letting your imagination come through.”
