It was only a week before the Governor announced the first case of COVID-19 19 in Manhattan that I last watched a movie at the cinema. The changes in lifestyle came swift. What I thought was temporary was a long-term change that would have an impact everyone on the planet. While some countries were successful in coping with the pandemic, NYC at that time was just starting to grapple with the crisis and was beginning to see the rise of cases. This are the photos I documented for the entire pandemic as life gradually changed into a new normal.
