Jean Ross
Jean Ross is a California-born photographer currently based in Brooklyn, NY. She photographs places and the people who live in them. Photographing the pandemic was both compelling and challenging for Ross. She generally subscribe to an “up close and personal” approach to photography. The pandemic called for greater distance out of concern for her own health, as well as a respect for those around her. Through photography, Ross tracked the progression of the pandemic, ensuing events, and her own response to it. She ventured further afield as the weeks stretched into months, the days lengthened, and her bicycling legs strengthened. This project is one person’s diary of a moment in our nation’s history like no other during her lifetime. It remains, at least for now, a work in progress.
