This is my personal project from my isolation series. I noticed on the first day of our countries quarantine, a surreal frenzy at the local supermarket for canned goods.
I started to wonder if I had missed some important information on the news. This started a chain reaction in me and I too started to buy canned food. Once at home, I started to laugh, because I normally don’t buy canned food but also became worried since I am alone. What if I got sick? Suddenly this array of canned food became very important to me. It gave me a funny form of security. All my images in this series are a combination of both multiple scanned imageries and camera data. Some final images contain over 50 single images. My aim is to create images that display the uniqueness of each canned food item.
