Photography in Days of Pandemic
Dilan Bozyel, 1985 21st Century Quarantine Still Life, Istanbul, March 2020
This challenging period of the pandemic will remind itself to us through particular phrases in the future. Medical masks and gloves all over the world, the near eradication of the concept of time (hence the hour), stocking on pasta and immune-strengthening fruits and vegetables, these have all settled snugly in our minds and perceptions via imaginary images. In this still life photograph, which was produced with a digital camera, I created a composition using items from my home and kitchen.
