During the coronavirus epidemic, I have spent a great deal of time with my grandparents and this project is a reflection of the relationship I have shared with them during this time. My main intention has been to capture this intimate connection but also the isolation of being away from others: just them, their dog and me.  

Due to their old age, they are at a high risk of being exposed to the disease and it has been important that they stay home, avoiding any potential exposure. Day to day events such as church services (they are both dedicated Christians), tending their garden and haircuts at home are all part of their lives in this time of isolation.
