These photographs were taken on a variety of 35mm Kodak color films in Seattle, Washington.

The Coronavirus made all of our worlds a vastly smaller space than we’ve grown accustomed to. For most of us alive today, especially in the United States, we’ve never known what it’s like to live within such conditions as what we’re dealing with right now.

We’ve never had our movement limited, told that we cannot leave our homes and if we do dare venture out into it’s only for groceries or medicine.

Working in a grocery store I was considered, perhaps for the first time in my life, essential. I have been working since the initial panic buying began towards the end of February. Since then work has been tense, uncomfortable, and overflowing with anxiety.

It’s hard to find a space to catch your breath lately, but I’ve had the best luck of finding that space while taking long walks through my neighborhood, documenting the area I live in a brand new way.

You start to look at your surroundings a little differently when you’re no longer allowed to go beyond  their boundaries.

All Things Intact” is a collection of photographs I’ve made from these walks around my neighborhood in Seattle.

These walks, despite being littered with reminders of the state of the things, have been critical in maintaining a sense of balance throughout this storm.
