"The Lost Years' documents the years that most adults cannot remember, before the age of seven-years-old.

As nanny & documenter of the child's day, I am a witness to many of the moments that get overlooked. These are images of the children and their friends in Los Angeles, CA.

In spite of stay-at-home orders for Covid-19 in 2020, the children I documented were still able to be kids and I was there to record those moments. It will be interesting to see if, as adults, they remember what they are told of the pandemic, or of these days that I documented."
