Art in the time of Covid. Lacking materials during lockdown, I turned to one of my favorite subjects, old family photos, as a window to the past. What fascinates me about family photographs is the before and after. How was the photograph posed? Why was that choice made in that moment in time and who made the decision? What did we return to after the shot was taken? I create my own narrative, questioning what the photograph is telling me. These photographs add another layer of curiosity. In our current state, I could not help but think about impending doom. Every historic period brings its own set of terrifying and idiosyncratic circumstances. These photographs were taken in the early sixties, and the questions that occurred to me during a global Pandemic would certainly have been applicable in the political and social turmoil of that era. There are always so many questions.
