The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the lives of nearly everyone. Over time, Susan felt that her connections to others had grown stronger, and she became deeply interested in how lives had changed for families in her community. This summer, she used social media to ask families, most of whom she hadn’t known previously, to volunteer to be photographed.
During these sessions, Susan double-masked and visited families in their homes, spending hours photographing them, mostly unposed, as they went about their lives. In addition, she also made “porch photos”, asking her subjects to hold signs with messages to share about their experiences and challenges during the pandemic.
