I started this blog to showcase and share my photography. I was especially excited to start sharing some new projects that were just getting underway. Then out of nowhere we got struck by COVID-19.
As we quickly watched the virus spread around the United States New York advance to first place. As a New Yorker I like it when our city is first but in this instance, not so much.
A few weeks ago I joined millions of my fellow New Yorkers who started to shelter in place. Thats was one of the hardest to do as my first instinct would have me hitting the street with my camera.
I did venture out once at the end of my first week of confinement to find largely empty aprks and streets. The same empty parks and streets we have all seen on TV and in printed media.
As I walked around, keeping my distance from the few people I encountered I couldn’t help but thinking “What the hell”? It was at that moment it struck me what we are up against.
While this virus has put my plans on hold it will not stop me from sharing work I have already created. In the days and weeks ahed I will be posting images and stories from projects of the past. Images I hope will lighten the mood and remind us of better times as we wait to emerge from this crisis and return to more normal lives…
