What I See: What taking care of each other looks like in a pandemic

In March, 2020, my Queens neighborhood became the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak. Through unusual circumstances, I found myself hunkering down in my two-bedroom, one bathroom apartment with my 86-year-old mother from Florida and my ex-wife from Los Angeles.

El simpático diario fotográfico de Neil Kramer, atrapado en cuarentena con su exmujer y su madre

Capetown etc, South Africa

Lockdown has been tough on families and friends – some haven’t seen each other in a year. Others have seen each other too much. Spending it trapped in a tiny apartment with your ex-wife and mother, however, is a different story altogether.

Awkward Family Photos

Okay, I want you to imagine the worst quarantine scenario you can possibly think of. One that would be your absolute nightmare…

This week my guest is Neil Kramer.  We talk about his very touching self portrait/documentary project in which he included his ex-wife and his mother, all sharing a small apartment in Queens during the lockdown.

In this fascinating discussion, Neil Kramer talks to Rebecca Weston about the ways in which humorous photos help him organize and process his experience; about the truth he's found in staged images; and about being part of, instead of outside, the photographic story. Neil also explores the differences between private and public audiences and the gendered aspects of the street photography he'd been doing and the domestic photography he's explored during the pandemic.
