The month of April had been quiet, both in the world and within myself. It was the first time in awhile that I was able to be still and listen to all that was going on around me, which was not much due to the stay-at-home orders in L.A. County. My photography subjects were limited to my neighbors who very much didn't want any human contact, my roommate, and myself.
The month of April was a blur of days, time passively moving forward like a slow-moving river. It forced me to grapple with ideas, thoughts, and issues below the surface that I neglected to deal with for a long time. I had never been one to photograph myself in-depth and create bodies of work that focused on my body. But as many of us have adapted to new ways of living and creating, I decided to train the camera on myself for once and dive into creating as a means to deal with my inner monologues.
This project is a narrative of my thoughts and feelings as the days pass by repeatedly, with little change in routine but constant changes in my mind. These photographs and writings are vignettes of a time where everything is in flux while simultaneously filled with mundane repetition.
Photographs are taken with a Canon AE-1 using 35mm Fujifilm.
