STILL HERE



Is an anthropological photography project of 19 New Yorkers during COVID-19 lockdown. The project follows a year journey through New York City during COVID-19. Exhibit coming summer 2021. Photobook to follow.

Execution: Film stills were taken in April 2020 of 19 New Yorkers that were still in New York City during lockdown. After the initial photo when the “Second Wave” was announced in late November a second set of portraits were taken of the same 19 New Yorkers.

Not knowing when COVID was going to come to an end the project was up in the air until the vaccinations started to roll out. Then the mask laws were lifted for New York and the last set of photos were taken in April 2021. Then we recorded sound clips from each person to express how they felt during each period of time the portraits were taken of them.

We each journeyed through so much together and alone. But we are STILL HERE.
