Sign ‘O’ the Times: Social Distancing in NYC

 

We’ve entered a strange moment in time and as a photographer I can’t help but document it.  Being mindful of the sensitive nature of this time due to the very real and dangerous effects of COVID 19 or the “Corona Virus” I captured images of individuals around the city with social responsibility and sensitivity.  People are scared, angry and trying to cope through it all.  The images captured evoke the call for distance from neighbors, friends, family and the community.  They are meant to feel distance, yet close.  Trepidatious yet bold.  NYC is hidden yet highly visible during this time.  A time that beckoned to be preserved for future generations.
