Life in a Bubble 

After almost a year of living in a pandemic, many people miss the feeling of physical touch and connection. In this photo, the subject is reaching out, trying to break free of the bubble they’ve been stuck in.

Masked Emotions 

Although someone may be smiling on the outside, on the inside they could be feeling completely different. A mask might cover a smile, but a smile might also be covering sadness. The photo was taken in black & white to emphasize these darker feelings that can be related to deteriorating mental health during the pandemic.

Covid-19 has many people feeling isolated. The subject is holding a mask made of bubble wrap to represent the feeling of being stuck in a bubble. However, the bubble wrap mask also represents protection.
