The pandemic has thrown us into a uniquely surreal and voyeuristic world presenting an opportunity for everyone to be their “unmasked” selves–for better or worse. Zoom changed how we interacted and gave us a new perspective­­–weirdly intimate, both authentic and contrived at the same time.

Fascinated by this opportunity to observe and capture a microcosm of human experiences during this pandemic, I have been working from screenshots taken since March 2020. With every screenshot captured, I found a different story, a new perspective, and a recognizable silver lining–­illuminating the humor boredom, pathos, and beauty that has kept us all connected.
