Probably one of the best photographers to ever hold a cel-phone, Douglas Miles takes aim at institutional racism while shooting stirring portraits of real people from tribal backgrounds the way a film director shoots scenes. The end result is made of myriad brilliance on the level of more well-known photographers and street-photographers of the modern era. Follow along as he tells the real stories of real people, not romantic, tragic or exotic stereotypes, 3 megapixels at a time.

Good art is timeless.
Great artists are the shapers of the times themselves.
