10x8 images made at home during the COVID-19 Lockdown period in 2020 (and the ongoing pandemic situation in 2021).  

A frustrating and anxious time for all of us, 
but with a few opportunities for creativity along the very bumpy journey.

The double-exposure Carrots argyrotype is a response to the expert work of John Blakemore.  I have only taken the time to make this one experimental image, which plays with perceptual consciousness as a response to the strange temporal consciousness that the Covid-19 period has produced.
