It’s already May and Coronavirus is still with us. While still in quarantine and unable to photograph people or anything involving people, I try to capture Covid-19 life as it unfolds around me. In the process, I end up photographing neighborhood places, nature, details of any kind that happen to catch my eye, self-portraits and, most recently, shadows.
There’s a certain darkness, drama, and also mystery associated with shadows–short, harsh shadows in the middle of a bright, sunny day, perfect for black-and-white images; long shadows with a hint of golden-hour glow, when the sun is low in the sky, just above the horizon line.
Here are a few images from my new series of Covid-19 shadows:
But as mentioned above, these days I don’t only photograph shadows, but also try to capture Covid-19 life as it unfolds around us. And in many ways, life goes on–Covid or not and sometimes forcing some of us to adapt to the new normal:
Myself? I hope warmer temps will be here, soon. I don’t like winter or cold weather in general. This cold season hasn’t been too bad, in terms of temps, but felt endless….
And I believe that every once in a while we need to take our minds off Coronavirus and think of something else, if possible, if only for a brief moment.
Storytelling is important, especially in times like these. We all have our Covid-19 stories we share. I’m always interested in reading more about others’ experiences, thoughts, and stories. Thanks for reading mine and, as always, thanks for stopping by.
Stay safe and well.
