Arriving 2020

I am employed at the local airport in my city as a baggage handler. This allows me the privilege of seeing how things unfold during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Throughout these trying times, I capture the eerie mood of a nearly empty airport terminal and the life within. Not long ago, the airport was thriving and filled with crowded walkways and long security lines. Of late, pilots wait, in solitude, for their next flight, passengers’ distance themselves from one another, and various airport employees avoid the crowded break rooms lounging in the spacious terminal. I chose to capture the essence of the airport with my cell phone, which I was able to use without drawing much attention to myself. This allowed me to remain unnoticed and the people in my photographs to continue with their actions and appearance.
