Unbroken Spirit:  Portraits in Lockdown

As the ground shifts beneath our feet, I feel the boundlessness of the human spirit and want to put it into sharp focus.  Best said by the young master of the spoken word, Kate Tempest, “My sanity’s saved cuz I can see your faces.”

Shooting over Zoom as well in person (where circumstances allow), the recurring visual theme in these portraits is untamed hair tumbling free over contemplative expressions, unconquered by lockdown, the crowning glory of the human spirit.
