Pandemic in Focus

Pandemic Portraits

Pandemic Portraits

Pandemic Portraits is a series I began shortly after the Statewide lockdown was established in New Jersey. I posted on my town's Facebook page asking if anyone would want to volunteer to be part of a portrait project depicting our new shared Covid-19 reality. Within two days I had already received over 40 comments and messages from residents of my town offering to volunteer.

I would photograph my subjects from a safe distance and often with a door or window in-between us. The project has expanded to inclue photographs of essential workers who do not have the luxury of working from home.


My goal with this project was to offer a sense of community and unity through docuemnting our shared expereincees with Coid-19.
