digital photography; 20×24”

“My photograph represents a narrative of loss. To lose a family member under normal circumstances is difficult enough, but to lose one unexpectedly and quickly to COVID-19 was very difficult. Because of Covid restrictions for funeral homes, I ended up standing as my wife sat next to her mother. With the camera in hand, I fired off a few frames but was quickly overtaken by my wife’s pain at the loss of her father.”
