“Chinatown Blues” is a collection of images photographed in Chinatown, San Francisco. The idea behind this set of photos was to showcase how the Covid-19 Pandemic affected the city. This collection was created as a way to document abandoned buildings, businesses that were forced to close their doors, as well as highlight the life coming back into the city post-pandemic. “Chinatown Blues” was shot on a roll of Ilford FP4 on a Canon AE-1 Program.
