I decided to start my new documentary project when people started taking the social distancing guidelines seriously. The impact on people’s lives, all around the world, was incredulous and fascinating at the same time. Where we live, in Maryland, the changes happened overnight. Parents became deputized as home schoolers, and many found themselves having to juggle their work with the home schooling and distant learning responsibilities of their children. Many were caught off guard. Parents also have to find ways to explain to their children why they need to socially distance themselves from their friends. Why they cannot have play dates. Or why the neighbor’s children cannot visit or come over for a sleepover. Why they cannot go scooting or biking together. I started by capturing moments of the new daily struggles of parents and families. Then I also started capturing more. From afar of course. Each image comes with a story.
