A few weeks before the coronavirus pandemic began to take hold of the U.S. I was talking with a friend about how I wanted to put life on pause. Now that I have this pause I find myself noticing the elegance of everyday scenes I previously found mundane. Being in my home state of Florida has also made me appreciate the niche details of life in the sunshine state. In response to these new outlooks, as well as the fact that life won’t be the same after the pandemic, I made these photographs. I wanted to convey the quietness and uncertainty many people are now experiencing. Under these circumstances everyone is reminded of how delicate life is and to appreciate the small things.
