Adobe Photoshop, pigment prints on acrylic and projection
A personal visual record of the unprecedented pandemic experience in the island of Manhattan.
Initially conceived as a set of postcards, the series evolved into a visual essay connecting the 1918-19 influenza and COVID-19 pandemic. Spanning a hundred years, the series documents the crises by questioning issues of personal and collective responsibility, humanity and gross indifference but also highlights new and long existing layers of racial and socioeconomic disparities catalyzed by the epidemic.
Greetings from Pandemic Island premiered as a solo exhibition featuring 36 prints on acrylic and a projection room at the Benaki Museum, part of the 2022 International Athens Photo Festival.
