About a month ago I visited Dallas to support one of my best friends, an extremely talented photographer, Danielle Finney of DFinney Photography for the opening of #talkaboutuncomfortablethings at Pass Thru Gallery in Dallas. While there I got to meet and hangout with some awesome people like Dani's mom, Denyelle, Lakiya and Takiyah the gallery owner.

Takiyah, a serial entrepreneur, had this wonderful idea to have a space to feature monthly exhibits of a photographer or creative! So to kick-off the grand opening of Pass Thru Gallery she featured Dani. I was more than happy to be there to support her and to capture this grand opening with video and photography.

For awhile now Dani has battled mental illness and depression and has lately been an advocate for mental health. To read more about that check out her blog post here. The concept of the gallery was to express how she feels in dealing with mental illness and depression through photography. And I must say she had some amazing images in this gallery.
For a recap of the event and to hear from on this project Danielle check out the video recap below.
