Walk On The Wild Side Today

Throughout history, it was never the people that stayed home that created change, it was those that jumped on the back of the unbridled ideas who made an impact. The uniqueness and creativity that those people instigated, simply by living a little wild, made a lasting legacy on the world.

Dawoud: My work is not intended to demystify the myths surrounding the Underground Railroad since they are not documentary photographs, but the project is meant to provoke the imagination around that history.
