Since April of 2020, Raymond W. Holman, Jr. has been documenting the impact of COVID19 in the Black communities of Philadelphia, and how it disproportionately affects the Black and brown community compared to other communities. He began by documenting the work of the Black Doctors Consortium, a professional Black physician volunteer organization in Philadelphia that was offering free Covid-19 testing, and giving people proven scientific advice on how to decrease their chances of developing Covid19. Raymond is now photographing people from my community who experienced the affects of Covid19.
