I seek connections to and ask
questions about the Divine, my ancestors, my family, my community, and
the environment by photographing, writing, and practicing various forms
of traditional needlework. I create through a feminist lens in order to
think about cultural, familial, and personal expectations as a mother
and woman. Additionally, I contemplate the delicate weaving of life,
death, decay, hope, light, darkness, and what gets left behind. I am
curious about how one person's expression of life and self-discovery
connect to another and how different basic human life experiences are
from one another. After spending a childhood blocking out life
experiences and people, I now want to be present to feel and savor where
I am in the world as I heal childhood wounds.www.megandrivinghawk.com

"In our modern world globalisation
blinds us with the invisible threads of industry and economy. Ryan is
an abstract artist seeking to look through this tangled web of the
world, to the beauty in
it that also connects us. Ryan encourages the viewer to listen to the
colours in his art and to get lost in the textures and forms and hear
their inner sounds. “We must find a way back to nature again to gain
inner peace of mind, and cure ourselves of this toxic imagery we see
every day”. Ryan maintains that the ultimate peace of mind can only come
from time spent in Nature, appreciating its beauty. "

My work is characterized by a strong imaginative component and the
sophisticated use of color.
This is the visual diary of my confinement
on the island of Tenerife, Canary Island (Spain).
A series of days and
places inside the house tied by the red color.
I mostly focus on photographing my immediate surroundings in the suburbs
of Newark, so my practice has not changed much. Perhaps it is even more
focused now on the same streets, that sometimes reveal a new detail
previously omitted, or a new shade of color as the light changes.
and raised in the suburbs of Montreal Island, I find inspiration in
shitty things; dead flowers, polluted river water, construction sites.
Although I explore, experiment and share various forms of visual art,
analog photography remains my favourite. I state “the cheapest way to
film” as I believe in limitless creation at a minimal cost, often using
recycled or thrifted materials.
Photographer living and working in Philadelphia. For the past 4 years,
I’ve been photographing the changing neighborhood of Fishtown in
Philadelphia. It sits in an area that is quickly changing through real
estate development and is near one of the hardest-hit areas affected by
the opiate crisis.
While my family and I have been staying at home, we do venture out to get materials at the pharmacy or to just get some fresh air. It gives me
a chance to continue photographing the changing landscape of Fishtown.

An emerging photographer focusing on connection between humans and nature, always aiming to create emotion to then connect to the viewer.
‘Transition’ was created as a photographic tool to explore how our emotions can be placed into another medium- how the camera and the brain coincide. In a simplistic way, the warm colours represent warmth and the cooler colours representing times of difficulty. The images aim to represent the truth as life is always changing, especially during these uncertain times for many. Above all, the series aims to document life and feelings to understand and explore the world in a more expansive way.
He is an artist, photographer and computer programmer based in Tarrytown, New York. His artwork focuses on the nuanced lack of connection between human beings.

I was born in 1995 in Florence (Italy). After many wrong choices, I decided to follow my real passion and I graduated from photography in march 2019, in Florence.
I feed on emotions, fears, lights, shadows. I photograph what keeps me alive and whats destroys me. I use to say that I photograph because I am not able to speak that much. Mostly I photograph what I can't say: I am just trying to express what I am feeling because I am not good at telling it.
My photos exist somewhere between looking and seeing. I feel pursued by images, aware that they are more likely to be found when I’m not looking for them. My pictures trace over fragments of reality, exploring light and composition, feeling and memory, and all the spaces in between.
My name is Emily and I am 17 years old! I make art in lots of different
ways (writing music, performing, photography, writing, drawing, sewing,
fashion, makeup, modeling, entrepreneurship, marketing, teaching,
learning, screaming, set design, digital manipulation, social media,
acting, etc.) I will use whatever supplies I’m given to create and replicate the ideas in my brain into some sort of tangible form. I find that art exists in the most peculiar of objects, and experiences. From the way, we sip our water, to the mold on our ceiling, to the peculiarity of our nightmares. There is a puzzle between our brain and reality which waits to be pieced together. As I observe myself in a self-portrait, I look beyond my skin and feel the power from the people around me, captured within myself. Quarantine has forced many of us to communicate with our friends and loved ones via our screens, but it is important to remember that there is a disconnect between the internet and reality. I like that an image can show the ugly, as well as the beautiful. An image can communicate my thoughts when I am unable to put them into words. When you look at an image of mine, you see both my body, and my brain.
I am a photographer out of Boston, MA working on a project about how the
people around me and myself find comfort in one another and their
environments through touch, gesture, and landscape, to understand the

Amy works as a Research Economist and spends much of her free time on photography. Photography invites (sometimes forces) her to slow down and pay attention to the world around her. She loves the challenge and joy of making interesting pictures from seemingly boring or mundane surroundings. Details and complexity start to emerge if she will simply be still and watch and wait. She finds great delight in the patterns and textures of life, and she hopes to communicate some of that wonder to you through her images.

Midwesterner who uses photography to give the viewer a moment of sonder, or the realization that everyone in the world has their own life and problems. Sometimes we spend most of our time in our heads and forget that everyone is experiencing life at the same time as us.
Karl Frederick Mattson
I am a practicing film-maker, photo-taker, and art-handler based in Buffalo, New York. I received a BFA in Photography from the Hartford Art School in 2014. My visual explorations borrow from the behind-the-scenes perspective of my day-to-day job while studying overlooked influences society has on the surrounding landscape through still imagery and time-based media.
As the pandemic continues, I become a voyeur in search of life, capturing how the illness manifests itself within these spaces. Photographing through windows into different homes and workspaces, I attempt to comprehend the forced separation and isolation we, as individuals, have placed ourselves in. Throughout my pursuit of life, I sense a strong urge to infiltrate and insert myself into the spaces I observe, but I am also content with limiting myself as an outside viewer, contemplating all aspects of the dwellings and people I encounter.
Kristen Farrah Naeem
I've lived in this Southern California community for as long as I can remember and grew up skeptical of organized religion while being raised in a combination Protestant/Muslim home.
These shots are from a series I did recently at a neighborhood church within walking distance from my home, which was an exploration of the collective comfort religious iconography offers and represents to followers in times of isolation, through an agnostic or secular perspective.

I'm an artist and filmmaker, a graduate of Prague's film school FAMU, focusing on new media, particularly moving images, but also exploring photography and its possibilities. I'm interested in the topic of invisibility - by means of art, I try to research the invisible, e.g. the states of consciousness.
I abide by the rule of cool - if it looks cool, I take a photo of it.
The expression of aesthetic values (what we like to look at) in art are just as valid as the expression of ideas - craft and concept are two sides of the same coin. I like to make things I enjoy looking at; the extractions of any "deeper meaning" is up to the viewer.
I am a self-taught photographer and a researcher in computer science. Native from India currently living in Israel. My photography works mostly revolves around urban spaces.
Having an autoimmune disease, I have been afraid to leave my home for any reason in fear of contracting coronavirus. I constantly feel trapped, disoriented, and isolated. To express and deal with these emotions, I have been keeping a visual diary of my time in quarantine. I’ve never photographed my space so thoroughly or sadly. I spend a great deal of time being on this inside looking out.
Victoria has been photographing her surroundings for as long as she can remember. It’s her memory, her feeling, her love language of choice.
Martina was born in Bergamo, Italy, 1998. She's attending the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, enrolled in New Media Art department. She also spent one year abroad at TU Dublin School of Creative Arts. Her photographic practise revolves around the theme of habitus, trying to analyze the context we live in. Because of that, she considers her self more an anthropologist. For the Quarantine theme she decided to propose an extract of a few shots where the prevalent colours are light and without any contrast. The suspension of time, frozen by the picture itself, talks about dead times where we need to accept the situation, and live with it.
I’m fascinated with conveying a feeling and essence about my subject beyond the physical. I try my best to paint emotions and how the things I portray move me. I believe that if you’re genuine and true to what you’re making, art always has a way of revealing more: uncovering some depth to your subject and/or yourself. For me, that’s where the magic of art is. It’s not about making something super cool or complicated or beautiful. It’s about making it super real, honest, and true.
Morgan Davis Foehl
I'm a Los Angeles-based writer and photographer. My quarantine began when my daughter’s school closed on March 13. Our world shrank to the confines of a two-bedroom bungalow and the blocks surrounding it, only as far as we're willing to walk. I began making pictures of our time, limiting myself to materials I can deal with at home — 35mm black and white film. These images, taken within a quarter-mile radius, are selections from that work.
I am a documentary and portrait photographer based in Bristol, United Kingdom. I am a trans artist and most of my work is about exploring my gender and documenting the LGBTQ+ community.

I'm currently a college student living in San Marcos, TX. I mainly like to capture moments that relate to my experiences. Quarantine has brought in a lot of anxiety and restlessness.

Marc Audisio is a 29 years old Argentinian photographer, mostly shooting analog for about 8 years now. He'll keep you on your toes with a dynamic array of colors, textures, portraits, and often overlooked everyday beauty
I capture usual moments of the every day + find inspiration in nature, unnoticed light, shadow, and movement, a blip: sudden minor shock, meaningless interruption, in an otherwise regular minute, hour, day, month, year, life.
Emma Lindsay is a performance, video and installation artist based between London, Cornwall and Norfolk
Maja Pozar is a Slovenian portrait photographer who's escaping into the quietude of the minimal.
'The style of my photography is very much so a continuation of my minimalist fine art works - modest, plain, and quiet. I believe we’re the ones who provide the stories. Events, products, and symbols don’t arise with the story and the meaning built in. My photographs therefore intentionally lack statement; they’re just an aesthetically pleasing sight in a vacuum. I neither need nor want to provide questions, ideas, and conclusions - just a quiet, melancholic haven from the overwhelming and ever present narrative.'
I am a photographer from West Palm Beach, FL. Currently I am studying at the International Center of Photography and will be earning a BFA from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2021.
