The Covid-19 pandemic has been one of epic proportions. Never had I imagined that there could be a health crisis of this magnitude. One that would force our cities to shut down, necessitate that we isolate ourselves socially, and lead to the loss of millions of lives across the globe. It has burdened our healthcare systems beyond measure, disrupted our social lives, placed immense pressure on our relationships and has impacted our state of emotional well- being. Although in variable degrees, it has affected most of us, financially, physically, socially and mentally.

Covidity, is an ongoing collaborative photo series with my two daughters, now ages 8 and 11, who have largely been home since their schools first closed in mid- March of 2020, when a Lockdown was put into effect in New York City in response to the outbreak of a novel coronavirus.

The project is an attempt to visualize our curiosities, and conversations with one another, over the countless hours we continue to spend in each other’s company. These photographic images are a reflection of the wanderings of our minds, as we navigate this extremely trying time in our symbiotic lives; where we have found ourselves restricted from movement, but not from thought.

The Covid 19 pandemic has affected communities all around the globe. While some have been affected more than others, we’ve all had to reimagine the way we live with creativity, resilience and hope. With that in mind, the series aims to provoke contemplation in the viewer over aspects of the human experience during this period in our collective history, as seen through the lens of childhood innocence, and its eternal optimism.
