Sharon Jones gave an electrifying performance to a packed crowd at @afropunk in 2014, and I was lucky enough to shoot it from the photo pit. Her hair cut short, she said she was celebrating because she had been cancer-free for exactly one year. Her energy was contagious. At one point during her set, she pulled a wide-eye fan from the crowd and the two of them danced for a couple of songs. It was pure joy.

Rest in power, Ms. Jones.
