Some Questions for Andrea Murguia Dajbura
What inspired you to create “Black Lives Matter Protest, June 2, 2020, Brooklyn, NY”?
I wouldn’t say that I created it. I just took a snapshot of the protest given the circumstances of the racial discrimination in The United States and the death of George Floyd. As racism keeps increasing in The United States, I think this photo speaks for itself and has a powerful message. Black Lives Matter.
How has COVID impacted your creative work?
COVID hasn’t impacted my creative work since I shared my work on social media. However, COVID made me observe a different perspective of the world.
