Lockdown Diaries: Snippets of Our Daily Life
I felt like I hadn’t really picked up the camera much over the past few weeks during the lockdown as I’ve retreated into my own bubble — but looking back and the thousands of files in my hard drive I clearly have.
A while back I’ve heard Pete Souza, Barack Obama’s White House photographer, say that often the true meaning or significance of an image doesn’t reveal itself until some time has passed, and I’m embracing that.
The little things I capture right now might not be “newsworthy” or as creative or groundbreaking as I’d like but it’s our life — the boring everyday life — right now.
And I know that someday I will look at these and will be amazed at how significant they were in capturing — and allowing me to remember — this strange time.
