DISAPPEARING SOUL: SELF PORTRAITS IN THE TIME OF COVID

As a photographer I wanted to document my life during the Pandemic. “THE DISAPPEARING SOUL: SELF PORTRAITS IN THE TIME OF COVID” is a project that was born as a result of my isolation of March 13 through June 1, 2020. As a doc/portrait photographer of women, my lens has always been aimed at someone else with me asking questions and hoping to break down their walls. I’ve always been a private person, inviolable. Now was the time to turn the camera on me. Expose myself though self-portraits.

Long exposures seemed to be fitting to relate the emotions of never feeling present or totally in the moment. Is this reality? I would dress every day, apply makeup….attempt to create productivity, positivity. I’d create dinner parties in my head. This would be my experiment to convey a visual conversation into loneliness. The black borders in the image represent confinement. Quiet solitude as I watch early spring turn into summer.
