Artist Statement:

In mid-March the average person began to take COVID-19 seriously, after the closure of businesses and schools, with many going on a self-imposed quarantine in their rented or owned space. The following months were different for many, but I rarely left the room I rented in Chinatown, instead sleeping all day and going on the computer at night. In this series I speak to the varied environments and experiences of people during the pandemic’s lockdown, photographing several domestic interiors.
