The period of time from the beginning of the pandemic until now seems to have been ten years and at the same time only a few months. It's like we're experiencing some sort of collective time warp.
When I stop and think about ALL of the things that have taken place in that period of time, I start to feel overwhelmed.
In this episode of The Nerdy Photographer Podcast, photographer Kamal X and I tackle some of that time periods and topics entwined with the time. Kamal's new photo book, Black Astronaut, "gives viewers a striking depiction of a nationwide revolution ignited by the pandemic and the passing of George Floyd. By taking an innovative approach my book creates an unparalleled opportunity to explore pivotal sectors of our country’s unrest."
In our discussion, we also touch on subjects ranging from overcoming uncertainty and hostile situations to what it truly means to be yourself. Now that it seems so distant in many ways, we forget how lost and in uncharted territory we really were.

"I am Kamal X, a professional photographer that has been documenting my travels throughout the world since 2015. Photography found me at a time in my life where I felt confused and voiceless. I wasn’t sure of where I was internally and what direction I wanted my life to go. I welcomed my challenges and I found myself drawn to creating images that evoke emotions rooted in the many universal elements of the human experience. My goal is to tell stories from all walks of life and give a raw voice to the world we live in, through compassion and honesty."
