Drive through testing centers are popping up all over West Philly. I photograph one of the first ones in Philly back in March and it was a big, strange deal — they were just figuring it out at the time and the hospital was excited to have me come by…View More In the neighborhood
Initially I’d been doing most of my photography in the near dark. Doctors and nurses usually change shifts at 7:00 — a.m. or p.m. after a 12 hour shift. So I’d be photographing either at 5:30 in the morning, or at 8:00 in the evening, but lately I’ve been photographing…View More In the neighborhood

I’m bringing two cameras and an external flash. The weather has been great for me (cloudly) for days but…View More Photographing an Instacart Shopper
Everything’s shutting down around me. People are, as much as possible, starting to work from home. Today I had the opportunity to photograph doctors and nurses at a Covid-19 drive through testing center. This is it’s first day of operation. We all want to help, me included, and taking photographs…View More Everybody wants to help, but what can I do?
