During the pandemic I wanted to give back to my community somehow and because I'm not able to financially provide support, I chose my art. I started taking pictures in small businesses over the summer and it expanded into this larger project to help support local business. Small businesses are incredibly important and are really suffering right now. This project is a reminder that these people matter and need as much help as possible. We are being faced with something that is beyond our control and our government is not taking care of us! It's time to really evaluate the true situation that we're facing in the U.S. and realize what it actually means to stand up and take care of each other.
