FROM MY WINDOW
IN CONVERSATION WITH DANIELLE L. GOLDSTEIN
Photography by Danielle L. Goldstein
Interview by Melanie Meggs
New York City based street photographer Danielle L. Goldstein, began photographing out her window when quarantine lockdown due to Covid-19 began in New York in March. Because shooting in the street felt both irresponsible and unsafe, Danielle started photographing the life she could observe from her eighth-floor apartment. The need to document what was happening in her home city was overwhelming. The project became unexpectedly poignant as she observed her fellow New Yorkers navigating their way through the concurrent crises of the pandemic and the BLM movement, just as she was. For her, it was heartening to see how people around her, still found ways to connect with one another, even during isolation.
"It speaks to New Yorkers' resilience and how much we care for and look after one another, even if from a distance."
