It was early April, 2020 when life in the east end of Long Island, New York hadn’t just slowed...it felt as if it had stopped. Life seemed frozen in time and in its stillness.I experienced a disorientation. I passed through places that over the years I had seen hundreds of times before. Now, busy streets and thrivings businesses that are generally bustling with locals were empty. Everything looked different. It was like seeing the world for the first time. The details that I might have missed were ever present. I felt like I discovered a new, misty soft and frozen world. It was unfamiliar.

Lisa Cutler is a New York-based photographer, whose practice spans, landscape, portraiture and street photography. Following a successful career as a TV Producer and Director, she is currently focused on making a
