“Since March 2020 I barely picked up my camera. The usual photo projects I enjoyed shooting seemed too trivial and impossible to continue. I traded my camera for sewing machine and as I watched number of COVID cases grow I started making masks. 12 hours a day – hundreds and hundreds. I could not keep up- friends , front line workers, strangers from all across ​the country were in desperate need. My anger at our government’s incompetence, frustration, sadness I was only able to channel by working non stop every day. As I picked my camera and ventured out to shoot this project I let my emotions and grief to guide me for the past few days. I was imagining moments and places of the people who passed from COVID and I tried to connect to their energy. I chose late afternoon for my shooting time – the time when things happen rapidly – when beautiful light dies quietly , softly, unstoppable.”
