DawnI can't sleep past 5:30 these mornings. So I roam my house in the quietude, waiting for the sun to come up and animate the static space. Like many artist I'm trying to use my living space (which I'm fortunate to have) as studio, set, character.
Six Feet Or MoreWalking through Brooklyn Bridge Park I tried to stay as far away from other people as I could. This woman and I did a sort of dance; each avoiding each other. Finally we both ended up on the water
Chinatown, NYC April 1, 2020 7:37 AMI drove over one morning to shoot a final roll of 120 film before dropping off 10 rolls at my newly re opened lab. I kept trying to photograph absence. It's gone from one of the densely populated areas of NYC to one of the most vacuous.
Trash CanEach day during the height of the horror of living in the epicenter I'd allow myself 1 walk, strategically timed to avoid as many people as possible. No matter how abstract the imagery the pandemic seems to intrude, in this photograph in the from of an out of focus figure in a mask.

Daily Walk #2Walking by the Gowanus canal I came upon these empty soy and fish sauce bottles. It was as if people had been drinking them during their lunch hour. Or emptying bottles before fleeing the city. And who would drink soy sauce anyway? 512 people died in NY State that day.

1 YearThis is a response to "A 20 Second Project" (started by Noa Street-Sachs) where she asked people from Minneapolis to Amman Jordan to answer the following question in 20 seconds: 1) Think about 1 year from now. What is a custom/practice/way of interacting that you think may change as a result of this crisis?
March 13, 2020A walk on Friday the 13th. I shot out a roll of photographs on a loaded camera I found around the house. I'd never used the camera before and was unfamiliar with the 2 1/4 inch square negative format. I was able to bike into Manhattan and have this single roll of film processed and scanned at a lab, but now that it's closed I have rolls piling up. My aim is to shoot a single 12 exposure roll during each day of shelter in place.
