I am a New York City based street photographer. I began photographing out my window when quarantine began in NYC in March. I started photographing the life I could observe from my eighth-floor apartment, because shooting in the street felt both irresponsible and unsafe. But the need to document what was happening in my city was overwhelming. The project became unexpectedly poignant as I observed my fellow New Yorkers navigating their way through the concurrent crises of the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement, just as I was. It was heartening to see how we 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.
