I was really drawn to the raw movements captured in this moment by Antwain Jackson. He attaches this quote to his image, “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you don’t stop.”—Confucius. It’s one of those statements that really pairs with the essence of the photograph—motion. Appropriately, just behind the boy, you can faintly see a sign that reads, “No Stopping Anytime.” I continue to read Confucius’ words and look at Jackson’s image. Each time I look back and forth, I feel a new sense of movement.
And they said DCist Exposed would never be used as as example in an Atlantic article about creating communities and Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In. Well, they were wrong. So, so wrong.
