Live Concert Photography: FIDLAR with Dilly Dally and NOBRO at Terminal 5 9/15/18
Over the past 100+ days or so, I’v been adhering to social distancing guidelines and self-quarantining as much as humbly possible. Honestly, it helps that there isn’t really anyplace to go — or anything to really do. But if you’ve been frequenting this site during that period you’d know that I’d occasionally go out for walks to get fresh air,. some exercise and to take photos; to run household errands — mostly beer runs; and for my mom’s various medical appointments.
Unsurprisingly, over the course of this site’s ten year history, I’ve managed to compile and develop a deep archive of unedited photos. As I’ve mentioned throughout this site’s history, much of my work with JOVM has coincided with working full-time, corporate jobs in book publishing as an Editorial Assistant and Acquisitions Editor. And if you add commuting back and forth to work and shows, listening to and writing about music, editing photos, going through my correspondence and even occasionally having a romantic and social life to my day, there sometimes just wasn’t enough time in my day to sleep or daydream or just do anything else.
Sadly, much of this work going through photos has managed to be an uncomfortable reminder of the some of the things I’ve loved so much that I’ve once had — and won’t get back for the foreseeable future, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
