Pandemic: The Unmasking of America by Craig Gordon.

This exhibition is a photo-documentary featuring images with narratives that bears witness to the coronavirus pandemic as it blanketed New York during the spring of 2020.

Gordon spent the initial lockdown period of spring 2020 between rural, upstate New York, and New York City, capturing the images that spoke to the inequities and injustices unmasked by the Covid pandemic. He believes the photographer’s primary job is to act as witness.

“Being a photographer is to communicate witnessed experience that sparks curiosity for the viewer’s inspiration,” said Gordon. “If a picture truly says ‘a thousand words,’ the photographer has a wide palette from which to communicate beyond language.”

Gordon’s primary areas of focus are conceptual (series of photographs based on a connecting thought), documentary (including photojournalism and everyday street life), and portrait photography (creative exploration and appreciation of the human face). He trained in commercial photography at the Germain School of Photography, NYC, 1979-1981.
