Anything But Normal
Until now I have strongly resisted the crossover of work between my photographic life and medical life. But with the onset of the coronavirus, it was time to relax this boundary.
I returned to the ER at the beginning of May, 2020 after a brief hiatus from work. What I found was a profoundly different environment from the one I left only a month prior. Everything had changed and for those of us on the frontlines, especially so. I felt a need to document it.
My aim was to capture the strangeness of the moment. All images were shot on my iPhone, through a protective Ziploc bag - a hack to limit contamination and contact spread of the virus, and ease disinfection - in an attempt to replicate the visceral experiences which were anything but normal.
