Creating art in the pandemic

The pandemic has stopped all the photography work assignments. It’s really hard to accept that and also harder to figure out what to do next. What I’ve decided to do next is to go through my photography archive and work with what I’ve got.

It is unbelievable how our everyday life has changed since the start of the pandemic. When I started thinking about it, the pandemic and restrictions, and how much change and disruption is has brought to the world, the image of the Cafe in Soler popped to my mind. I tried to imagine what this scene would look like without people.
