During the pandemic I've been keeping things lowkey, and observed everything that has happened this past year. I've seen small shops and restaurants close and some who are still hanging there.
I started a personal project, a photo essay called "still here, still alive" as part of my new years resolution which featured these businesses.
In addition to photographing them this series will: give insight on their experiences, provide candid advice for others, and to illustrate an alternate reality for those who do not run a small business. However this series is not limited to just businesses, I also want to expand further and include individuals who have been surviving this pandemic.
