This project conveys the raw emotions rooted within the very word “quarantine”. Quarantine in a period of isolation. It is the boxing-in of ourselves, and in turn, our identity and desires and goals. Through this memoir of photographs, I convey the festering within each of us as we continue to live through this time. Our inherent emotions and mental states take hold as we experience the world, maybe at its best and worst.
