Texas-based photographer Sara Easter of Sara Liz Photography is an expert on using her lens to tell important stories. She has captured families' experiences social distancing due to the coronavirus as well as what it's like to be homeless with children. Her most recent project — titled "The Color of Boyhood" — examines what it's like for boys of color to grow up in the US. For the poignant and informative series, Sara asked families to share their perspectives and experiences with their sons.
"The idea started in response to the murder of George Floyd and the protests worldwide," Sara told POPSUGAR of the series. "I have three boys, the oldest of which is a preteen. Through conversations with my friends who are people of color it became abundantly clear that they had a whole other set of worries about their boys getting older, in addition to all the normal parenting fears. I decided I wanted to document boys who are people of color and allow them to show who they truly are as well as hear their thoughts on how society sees them."
