Adapting to a Pandemic

A series of images exploring how artists and creatives in NYC were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. My work asks questions about acceptance, resilience, hope, how to keep creating when it feels like the world is telling you to give up — questions that, as an independent artist myself, reflected my own personal experience of the pandemic that I’m still grappling with today.To me, these images demonstrate the power of personal expression, and in taking control of one’s creative freedoms — and just how much resilience is possible in the human condition.
