I've lost track of how many days it's been since Covid-19 has forced us to shut down and isolate ourselves in our homes. All in an effort to slow down the virus's spread.

This week, several protests were held in the U.S., as well as a few in Canada, by people who want life to go back to normal, so they can work and get outside again. This goes against the advice of health professionals and community leaders who fear if we loosen self-isolation restrictions too soon, we could see cases ramp up quickly again. 

I understand some people's frustration - no one wants to be stuck in their homes, and not be able to do our regular activities that give us joy, like going to the movies, eating out at a restaurant, or even just seeing a friend for coffee. We are naturally social creatures. But this is where public health takes priority over economic concerns.

My last project focused on the world outside our home during the lockdown. This series of images - all made from within our property - focuses on our life at home while we wait out the enemy.
