The Work Of
Dashiell Titus Parker. January 7, 1988 – October 9, 2018. If you knew him, chances are he met your gaze through a lens. And there was a good chance you joined the images of his collected family and friends. Frozen in moments of laughter, celebration or contemplation as you looked back at him, frozen in time. Yours was a face he could look on whenever he wanted from the comfort of his desk, bed or in the soft flicker of a screen.
This body of work is a celebration of the legacy that will live on beyond Dash’s short 30 years. It is this legacy of images and sounds that serves as a fitting reminder of the namesake of the nonprofit that is launching in his honor, Dash Loves You, a foundation that will help children see the beauty of the world through their own photography and help artists overcome societal obstacles to share their work with the world. Dash believed in the beauty of life, even when it wasn’t always pretty.
