Signs of COVID-19 by Betty Thomasby The Biscuit Staff, Tim Miner on May 5, 2020
Being contained isn’t good for creatives. They have to get out, see the world and share their interpretation of what they see. In times like these, which are — with no hyperbole — historic, this creative impulse helps all of us process the gravity of all that is going on around us. It also creates a record for the future of how people felt, what they say and some idea of what life under stay-at-home restrictions and the COVID-19 outbreak was life.
That’s why we’ve started the “Visions of the Not Normal” photo series with Charlotte Ledger — to see the city’s neighborhoods through the lenses of Queen City photographers. Explore the first two installments from Heather Liebler and Will Jenkins.
In response to this series, Charlottean Betty Thomas reached out to The Biscuit. For the last several weeks, as she walked her neighborhood, Betty shot photos that portray the signs of the times … actual signs that have been put up in response to the outbreak.
Thank you for allowing us to share your perspective with our readers, Betty.
