Empty Cityscapes During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Louis joined the Bronx Senior Photo League classes at Castle Hill Senior Center in March 2019. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Louis transitioned to remote learning, receiving the lessons by text and speaking over the phone. He continued creating a photography project focused on his experience during COVID-19. Louis documented empty cityscapes of the Castle Hill neighborhood during the pandemic. He captured street scenes while New Yorkers were staying home.
