I really, really dislike doing this to you, but after much agonizing following the Governor’s announcement earlier this afternoon (March 23), I decided to cancel the Front Steps Project for now. It is just not worth the health risk, even if that risk is minimal. The Covid-19 situation is expected to get much worse, and I would like to be part of the solution, not the problem.
I am truly very sad. I very much enjoyed photographing eight families yesterday in an effort to bear witness to these trying times and spread some cheer. Going forward I’ve decided it’s better for the entire community to not take any unnecessary risks. I sincerely hope you understand. I can’t wait to come together again when we’re on the other side.
All my best wishes. Stay safe and healthy.

The idea is both to bring us together in this time of isolation and to document the unprecedented weirdness of being cooped up at home indefinitely. Here are the nuts and bolts:
