Through the Eyes of Seven started as a visual diaries of the artist’s frontliner family with a seven-year-old son during her husband’s absence last spring when New York was devastated by COVID-19. Her husband was assigned to the COVID Team at his hospital. He quarantined himself away from the family for a couple of months in our bedroom at home during the height of the death toll. Sirens screamed incessantly as the ambulance crossed the bridge next to our building before entering the Midtown Tunnel. The imminent threat from the virus was very real in a frontliner’s household. Her son would cry with anxiety whenever we needed to go outside, being afraid of catching coronavirus. Most of the photos were shot at her son’s height in an attempt to better understand his perspective during this pandemic.
