Coronavirus: Words on the window from these in isolation
As an increasing number of folks keep indoors to gradual the unfold of the coronavirus, Stephen Lovekin has began photographing households isolating in Brooklyn, New York.
Initially, Lovekin photographed households on their porches however it quickly turned clear picturing them behind a window was the best way to go.
“As the project began to evolve the idea of the window started to make more sense,” he says, “the window being something that we look out on the world from, something that literally frames how people can look in on us and how we look out at the world, something that we normally do not enter or exit from.”
Lovekin requested every household to share a message with the world.
The mission has been working for a few week solely however has already had a lot of constructive response on social media.
Lovekin intends to proceed so long as it’s protected to take action.
“I hope that in this time of chaos and uncertainty, this project will help people feel more connected to the outside world even though we are all literally separated from one another for an unknown amount of time,” Lovekin says.
“If we continue to communicate and connect with those around us in a direct, honest, and positive way, we can get through this together.
“It is not going to be simple however nothing worthwhile ever actually is.
“Stay safe and stay at home.
“And as my very own kids’s signal stated, ‘Soon we will likely be collectively.'”
