It all started with me losing the plot. Cleaning, cooking, home schooling, stuck at home... It was all a bit too much! I know you all can relate! I am one of those people who always need to be creating. But all I was creating was new recipes and new activities for my girls. Overwhelming, grinding everyday routine. With no way out. And then one day I pick up my neglected camera and decided to start documenting my friends and family who were, like me, stuck at home. It was the best decision I could have ever made for my mental well being.
Just getting out of the house, seeing people I have been missing, getting some creative juices flowing... best! After a couple of weeks, seeing I am more than able to keep my distance and still get nice shots, I decided to open the project for the paying public. With special corona days prices it went absolutely mental! So hectic and so much fun!
I visited over 50 households, I met 5 newborns, 4 babies turning 1, and even a couple on what should have been their wedding day! I feel so honoured to have been a little part of people's lives, hearing stories, documenting, gifting them a memory of these crazy times! The best part was that some of the families became returning customers and I got to see them again. What a treat!
All my customers got their images both in colour and in b&w. For me, as an artist, the black and white really enhanced our common situation. How we were all in it together.
