Wife During Quarantine

When covid hit, I had little desire to shoot for weeks, having lost what I enjoy most, making portraits of different people. Then I realized I hadn't lost anything. I had all the people I needed in my quarantine partner, my wife. And together we started creating in our little New York apartment. Initially it wasn’t Wife During Quarantine or a defined project, it was just doing something, anything, other than thinking about the pandemic. But it quickly became a collaboration working together to see what we could create alone in our apartment with what we had at home.
