Familiar Faces, 2020-21

unique pigmented prints on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, 10 x 8 to 72 x 56 inches

A series of soft gestural black and white portraits, Familiar Faces deals with my experience of the COVID-19 pandemic. Avoiding physical contact with people and maintaining distance feels unnatural, especially in densely populated areas like New York and New Jersey. Even in my neighborhood, familiar faces began to appear strange, and unrecognizable due to masks, more limited interactions and an absence of response. I started this work because the current moment resembles an urban fog from a dystopian novel, where faces appear distorted, and figures disappear into a colorless haze.
