Children Of a Frozen Time
My project is focused on children during Covid-19 as the pandemic is taking a heavy toll on all of us, affecting our emotional, and mental wellbeing- I wanted to engage my creation process around their emotions and how they responded to the pandemic. Children often struggle to express and process their emotions and they react differently to the occurring events around them compared to us. My photography tried to capture their emotions and response during school closures for a long period of time. Children were stuck at home with an immense need for entertainment. As a result, emotions were bottled up inside them. I wanted them to feel free of their emotions and act on how they felt during photographing them. For a brief moment, they seemed to forget about the pandemic and why they were stuck inside.
