I began this
work on March 13, 2020, the day New York City went into lockdown, and
photographed through the end of May. I walked for miles every day, spending
hours exploring the boroughs of Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, photographing
hospital workers, doctors, police officers, and other New Yorkers, each
experiencing this period of isolation in their own way. I also photographed the
daily 7:00 p.m. expression of gratitude, when the city cheered its healthcare
and frontline workers, a communal celebration in the face of adversity.
