Pandemic in Focus

The 7PMers - A thank you from Jersey City

Alastair Arthur | United States

Grace, who I met later, and her husband.

At first I didn’t want to go out to photograph at all as the virus hit New York. We started joining in the 7pm call from our apartment window, the grateful noise in appreciation of health workers and other essential workers. We could hear others doing the same, but couldn’t see them.

After about 3 weeks of being almost entirely indoors, I started going out and went to see some of the other 7PMers (as I started to call them). And then take a few photographs. It seemed a good thing to do, to record these moments of thanks, happening not just in Manhattan but across the Hudson too, here in downtown Jersey City.
