Pandemic Portrait: Katharine and Wesley

Katharine and Wesley, Pandemic Portrait – Austin, Texas

Back in the spring, I went downtown to take pictures of the murals painted on plywood that beautified and protected the closed businesses. After I shot my favorite, on 5th Street, I headed a block north. I wasn’t the only one.

I saw other photographers documenting the historic event on 6th Street. In fact, the block was mostly dead other than the photographers. There I met Katharine and Wesley, and I asked for a portrait.

After resetting my tripod optimized settings on the Fuji GFX 50R, I took a few handhelds. Katharine and Wesley in masks, and the murals featuring mask covered people perfectly captured that time — not too long ago. As summer winds down, the murals are gone, but the virus remains.
