“COME TO MY WINDOW:  a project born from a year indoors”
(PHOTO BOOK)

“In March of 2020, the world as we knew it changed forever.The colassal pandemic, COVID-19, had overtaken 24,901 miles of the Earth. Masks were enforced, hospitals everywhere were over capacity, thousands of people were dying daily. Streets went silent, parks turned into morgues, millions of jobs were lost, shop doors were permanently shuttered. A wave of fear struck humanity like a tidal wave as a “stay at home” order was put into place.

With no answers in sight and the fear overtaking me also, I was itching to remain creative and so began the 
COME TO MY WINDOW PROJECT,
a documentary photo series embodying a variety of communities between New York and Florida during their period of seclusion. The series looks at our human instinct for connection under extraordinary circumstances, offering a glimpse into the inner world of individuals’ isolation.

I created this book to be a physical reminder for ourselves — and even an introduction for future generations who didn’t live through 2020 — of the
beauty and the pain that came from this time.”
