Earlier this summer, Ashley also had her work appear in the Times Style section-- a poigniant image from her Black Angels project was chosen as the featured photo for Black In America, Through A Camera. The article discussed a show and auction organized by See In Black with well-known artist Jamel Shabazz in which Ashley was selected to participate.

Congratulations to Ashley on this well-deserved achievement!
