Quarantine

Since March 2020 I have been photographing myself and my family at home in CA. My main focus has been my son, West. As children often do, he has unabashedly been showing a wide range of emotions. Observing him has been a gauge of what we all have been collectively feeling. I’ve been photographing us, almost obsessively, as a way to come to terms with my own confusion and sense of loss. When I look back at the earlier work our life feels almost unrecognizable. I know that it felt as if we were existing on the cusp of a new way of life, but I can no longer distinguish the difference between what looks like hope and what is despair. The two seem to exist simultaneously as we take it day by day, putting one foot in front of the other.

    Evergreen Brick Works
    Toronto, Canada
    How do you listen? What do you hear? Nestled in the Don River ravines amidst urban trails and the Don Valley Parkway, Dastgāh is a sound sculpture that asks visitors to open their ears and listen differently. Created by the brother and sister duo Mani Mazinani and Sanaz Mazinani, the instrument takes its title from the Farsi term “dastgāh,” and can be literally translated as a “hand” (dast) and “gāh” (way) or “set of directions,” a modal system that serves as the foundation for composition and improvisation in Iranian music.
