2020 Visual Diary: 2020-06-07 (Still Life) fait partie de mon projet 2020 Visual Diary, entamé peu après la propagation de la covid-19 à Montréal. Du 18 mars 2020 au 17 mars 2021, pendant 365 jours sans interruption, j’ai documenté les changements de la nature en photo et avec de courts textes dans le but de réfléchir à notre relation avec elle. J’ai partagé mes photos et mes textes quotidiennement sur les réseaux sociaux, dans l’intention de reconstruire notre relation avec la nature au moment où la plupart des gens étaient confinés chez eux – et aussi pour leur remonter le moral.
