Today, is the first of a special project I've begun during this time of quarantining. Although I live alone, with my dear cat Meeps, I've had to grapple with 8 weeks + of isolation. As a photographer, I've searched for ways to get out and shoot while remaining safe and at a distance. This has led me to haunting my neighborhood garden shop after hours and friends' beautiful gardens to shoot and get fresh air! It's also opened up a project I'm calling Life At A Distance.
Yesterday I ventured out to daughter Kathleen's home to have Mother's Day lunch with her family. For the last 8 weeks she has voluntarily made and donated hundreds of masks for healthcare providers, friends, neighbors, their company, and strangers. She has turned her dining room into a mini factory as have so many across this country.
