Director Statement

The COVID-19 Pandemic impacted business owners across the country. I noticed the impact in my local community in Maryland and wanted to capture the emotion of emptiness and sadness when these businesses closed in the community. When a business closes it impacts the owners, employees, and their families as well as the patrons and that local community. When I realized one of my favorite breakfast and lunch restaurants closed it really hit home. I was a patron there for 17 years. I felt it was important to tell their stories. I shot it in black and white and without audio to convey the tone of sadness.
