The Current Situation has been a challenge, of course. Photography hasn't appealed to me for many months, and as I've been trying to get back to normal my results have been… rote. I've been trying to redo the same things I did before, with predictable results. I haven't been trying to take photos that look the way I've been feeling.

In realizing that I could change it. I've been looking for images that happen to reflect the new reality – disconnected, anxious, inexplicable. And I've been finding them. Even some of the family photos I've taken are a bit surreal.

It hasn't all been an exercise in retroactivity, either. I'm also trying a new project. It's on film, so even though I've been working on it for a couple of weeks I've only just had a glimpse of the preliminary results. So far they're promising, at least to me. It's nice to have something to look forward to.
