Photo of Robert
Photo captured by Noah Hawes
Meet eighteen-year-old Robert. He enjoys sports, drawing, and photography. Robert describes Coronavirus as something that has changed how we see the world around us. In his photographic work, a nearly empty OTR street can be seen in the reflection of a storefront COVID sign, urging one to ask how COVID-19 has reshaped the view of your environment. In Robert's drawing titled "Sector O:", the word "Ohio" stands with a mask and a bottle of hand sanitizer. During the pandemic, each state has become its own "sector", defined by its requirements for safety and its rate of infection, rather than its traditions, culture, and history.
