Echoes of New York
by Brittany Sutton
Photography is one of my newer passions. I always had a deep appreciation for those who could capture a moment in time, but I never attempted it myself until the pandemic hit. I didn’t know that photography would be my lifeline throughout the chaos. Working in a hospital as an essential worker, I could not see friends or family until testing became more readily available. So, photography became my connection and my outlet. It made me resilient; it helped me foster hope and optimism during some of the darkest days of isolation. In addition, photographing New York City at the height of the pandemic and the peak of vulnerability allowed me to fall in love with the city again.
The “Echoes of New York” series was photographed throughout the entirety of lockdown in various areas of New York City.
