Bob Leonard is a street photographer who lives on the Upper West Side and is a member of the Soho Photo Gallery. He’s been taking pictures of the neighborhood and city through the year as Covid changed how we move, dress and act. He presents the photos in groups of four, with connections between the images in each quadrant.
He explained how the project progressed:
“The onset of Covid-19 in the winter of 2020 limited my movement, initially restricting me to my neighborhood on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. As the year progressed, I was able to expand my range in the city and beyond. These composite images tell my story of the pandemic through artifacts and portraits of my neighbors.”
