Photos from Home During the Time of COVID

There’s a lot going on in the world today and so much of it hits home.

As a window onto the home front, our art editor, Ryan Stander, generously agreed to share some of the photos that he’s taken during the time of COVID. 

Ryan frames these photos as follows:

As Covid took hold of higher education sending the world online, my primary role expanded from art professor to include full-time caregiver to our two young boys. I urged my students to document their lives in this time to create a record of what they were seeing and experiencing.  As my anxiety ebbed and flowed over the spring and summer, this project allowed me to be present and focus my attention on what was happening with the boys and in our home together. My style, which might be somewhat of a curious blend of formalism, banality, and a love of line and shadow, has not changed. I have just constrained what I am shooting and what I am shooting with (my iPhone only). By putting such parameters on the project, I force myself into other creative modes and solutions.
