A Very Good Recipe
During an evening photo walkabout, I saw this creative sign in the window of Curio Spice, one of my favorite niche stores in Cambridge. When I’m shooting documentary photos for the Lens, I usually only post images of people, situations, and signage with a literal Covidian connection. But there’s a deep nexus between the pandemic and racism. Covid has not only amplified all of our personal demons, it has laid bare the pervasive and systematic racism in our country.
Kudos to Curio Spice for devoting a window to this very Covidian topic and framing it in such a hopeful way.
