Raise it Up // J Dilla + Ma Dukes

This one is truly for the community. Something to honor this ridiculously dope woman (Ma Dukes), to pay tribute to the wonderful things her son (J Dilla) has contributed to the world of music and to celebrate the amazing energy we share in Toronto as a result of our musical connection.

This is a moment, one moment captured across multiple cameras by some amazing artists I truly admire and respect.

I was most privileged to photograph the events surrounding the screening of 'The Suite for Ma Dukes' here in Toronto this past February. I love the world of photography because photographs enable you to relive otherwise forgotten moments in time and inspire you to live a thousand more just like it.

Thank you to everyone who came out to join us in celebrating a legend!! Your support and energy made it a wonderful atmosphere.
