Portraits From Six Feet: Life During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Portraits From Six Feet is a personal project I started in response to the coronavirus pandemic and to help fill the emotional and creative void left during the early days of the COVID-19 lockdown.
I began taking pictures of neighbors, strangers and friends in March of 2020 and during the first few months of our mandated lockdown in Seattle. All the images were made during long daily walks in my neighborhood, and the question I always asked everyone before picking up the camera ... "how are you feeling today?".
Creating this body of work wasn't easy, but it has shown me how being collectively vulnerable can offer unique insights into what shapes a community.
