Facing Ourselves: Reckoning is the newest chapter of the Facing Ourselves project, begun in 2016 in southern Italy. When the pandemic struck and limited all travel, I began to turn my lens towards the world immediately surrounding me. I was drawn to document the changes taking place on all levels - the lockdown, the fear, the outrage over economic and racial injustice, the rising up of passionate people all over the world - so many of us looking for a sense of hope to carry us out of the darkness.

These images reflect small segments of each of these elements that were a part of our daily lives. The serve as a microcosm that reflects the larger picture here and abroad; the ways that all of these crises were, and are still, affecting us.

These photographs are all part of an upcoming photography book, Facing Ourselves: Reckoning, that will serve as a fundraising tool for national and international social justice causes.
