Humans as a race are social creatures. We played, prayed, worked and struggled as some form of communal network. However, with the Covid-19 pandemic, we were forced into a near unnatural experience to many: Isolation. Restricted and reduced activities made normal life uncommon in most areas of the world. And as the pandemic carries on many continue to wonder when a normal life will return.
Thriving in this solitary condition, I used the opportunity to document and display my works as a representation of life in this moment in history as humans are removed from the everyday cycle due to stay-at-home orders and quarantines.
Influencing this theme of work is my personal preferences and lifestyle coming to fruition in the everyday life of other normal people. When I’m not doing photography, I like to hike and go on hunting and fishing trips, as well as working farms and ranches in the state of Pennsylvania. In these activities, there is little to no interaction with people over a certain length of time. In this exhibit, my intentions were to put perspective of isolation in social settings. Where my common lifestyle blends into the discomforting new norm of everyday life. I hope these works can spark an emotion of some kind while viewing these pieces and form a reflection on your personal experience throughout the pandemic.
