So, I have been thinking a lot about wanting to produce work in response to the current outbreak. But I didn’t want to do the typical going out and shooting empty towns and cities. Don’t get me wrong its beautiful work but its not my work style.
My best friend is a nurse who is currently on the front line feeling the effects greatly of the lack of PPE gear due to the public panic buying it all. There simply isn’t enough for the lack of front-line workers already, meaning that less and less of our keyworkers are unable to work and help the people that truly need everything available right now.
My project is focusing on that exactly, people are bulk buying PPE gear but not knowing how to use it correctly so it becomes a waste. You may be covering your face and hands but without using it correctly your whole body is still exposing and naked to the effects of COVID-19.
I am producing self-portraits demonstrating the lack of awareness on this subject. I hope they aren’t too risky for you and I hope the extreme story of this reaches the correct audience. Also praying my father doesn’t see these…
Hope you are all doing well and staying safe, if you need anything whether its art related or not I am always here. The live chat is anonymous and I am always available for this, my email is also featured in my about page, and at the bottom of every page. Remember, check up on each other and help everyone you can. The small act of reaching out can go a long way.
