This is a candid street portrait I did in my city at the Plaza de Armas

London

As the UK struggles with Lockdown fatigue during the Covid19 crisis, couples and friends escape their homes to enjoy the warm weather and exercise. Swimmers respect the social distancing rules, cooling off in the River Lea, Hackney , London UK. So to get this shot I went out armed with my 70-200mm lens . The brief was - to get a pretty picture of people pushing boundaries of social distancing and the relaxing of lockdown rules from Sunday. I've got to be honest cycling around London parks armed with my long lens made me feel really uncomfortable! Aiming into the crowds and trying to single out groups of friends clearing meeting up. I thought anyone can make this look busy with a telephoto lens and actually no one was really breaking the rules .. it looked busy but couples and small groups were at a social distance from each other! The police came along and moved everyone on that was sunbathing and not exercising, which gave me a few pix but nothing pretty. I headed home via the canal path through Hackney marshes and happened upon a scene from, I quote, “what heaven might look like“ It felt like a dreamy escape somewhere exotic, but is actually In Hackney! The police moved the majority on who were sunbathing on the banks, but a few returned to the tranquil cool waters of the river Lea, respecting social distances from each other. I hung around just long enough to catch this couple kissing and meet my deadline !

From the origin of universes to the moment of endless existence, each soul seeks to know itself deeper and deeper. And what if everything already known, suddenly our destinies are already predetermined. In this photo the artist shows the universe of infinity, deeply enveloped in the elements from where we came from and where we really feel comfortable without fear and pain without regrets and reproaches. This underwater  photo was done in amazing Bali island in Indonesia

Taken September 26, 2020
We didn't know why, but my husband was in excruciating pain. I couldn't get him into our car to take him to the hospital. We were both terrified what him going to the hospital would mean as he would be alone. The pandemic made it so family could not be with loved ones in the hospital. I took this picture as my husband was being put into the back of an ambulance because I didn't know when I would see him again. He would ride in the ambulance alone, and be in the hospital alone. I waited 5 hours in the parking lot of the hospital that night. My husband had an emergency appendectomy and 8mm kidney stone. Due to Covid, they sent him home less than 8 hours after that ambulance ride. This photo sums up so much for me. The medical staff and ambulance are a light of hope in the darkness. The love of my life for over 33 years being taken away from me. Both of us separated from each other, and being scared of what going into the hospital would mean. Not only were we scared of his pain, but scared that he would contract the virus while being treated in the hospital. So many had been separated from their loved ones during that year, and have felt as I did then. When would I see my loved one again? Are they alright? Will the virus seize them too?

This photo is part of series - LOST PARADISE

Paradise – this series of works is part of a long-term project, but speaking in the light of today’s terrible events, this series is more suitable for the title – Lost Paradise, everything that happens in Ukraine is hell in the broadest sense of the word, everything now is divided into before and after. All aspects of the past life are being rethought. If the original idea of this series was a game with eternal youth, now it looks like memories of bygone days and youth that has irretrievably gone.

My mom came to visit me in Stockholm. We spent the day out at Djurgården and took the bus back home. I love her.
