Covid Portraits | Sean Dunn

posted in: Uncategorized

“Towards the end of last year I was at a point where I felt pretty disconnected from my photography (and from people in general, honestly). The band (Five Eight) as going to do some touring this Spring and I thought I might get some new ideas on the road but that turned out not to be the case. A friend in Texas sent a post about someone doing this general idea and I immediately wanted to see if I could make this happen here. Themes include families and individuals in isolation, the mundane, humorous and sometimes surprising way people present themselves at this time. I’m trying to avoid the larger themes that are already being covered. I’m trying to capture the specific and unfinished and maybe more intimate stories. I’m open to whatever ideas people have as long as we keep at a safe distance. So far the response has been amazing and having something planned most days that involves human interaction has helped me through this. This is an ongoing process so if you’d like to take part please contact him on Instagram (@fiveeightathens) or by email at
