These photographs are 3 of a larger group of over a hundred images taken throughout the pandemic thus far of items that I’ve held. Collected almost accidentally, I often use my cellphone as a way of visual note-taking. Although these weren’t meant to be viewed by anyone but me, while recently archiving and organizing these images, the importance of what I could and could not touch during the pandemic becomes clearer and heavier. During this time I have also become, as we all have, much more aware and wary of my own hands and what they come into contact with throughout the day. One hand becomes the subject, holding a found object, while the other holds a cell phone and documents the interaction.
