  5. A self-portrait which reflects disconnected moments I've experienced during quarantine. Equipped with just my camera gear and skateboard, I explored my Massachusetts suburb during the months of July and August. During such a prolonged and uncertain time, it's easy to feel your sense of self and individualism slip away. I documented my surroundings to hold onto what I know.
