“Every day patches the night up…” While in the midst of a pandemic, photography offered me a form of sanity as I continued photographing the neighborhoods I live in. Walking to corner liquor stores became respites in times of isolation. Working from home, moments began bleeding into one another. Things continued to blow up around me, days blending into nights, weeks into months, and finally years. Double exposed images, taken at specific times of day, create abstracted images/memories of the past years. A blurred time forever stamped in my memory.
