Being homebound within the context of this unsettling moment in our collective history has flung the doors open on a museum of moods and psychological curiosities. This series serves both as evidence of these mercurial and repetitive emotions, and as a chronicle of this strange time for my family. We continually explore feelings of anxiety, ennui, humor, and restlessness. A variety of focal lengths were employed, some aimed at a classic style of portraiture with the incongruence of absurd elements, and others with distortion to capture the oddity and tension within these narratives. The overall effect is intended to invite the viewer into something intimate and familiar, while not commanding how they are meant to experience or interpret the image.
