Covid Positive

April Vendetta

2021, Digital Photograph on Metal, 10" x 14", 1.5 lbs, Online Exhibit

"In August of 2021, my partner Elizabeth and I tested positive for "breakthrough" covid. We each had two shots of one of the two-shot vaccines offered in the US earlier in the same year. This photo is from a series of daily photos I took while quarantined in our apartment for ten days. We experienced mild symptoms from the virus during this time and certainly would have had a more difficult time without the vaccine. This photograph acts as both a historical record and an illustration of my lived experience."
