Photographer Caroline White captures beautiful portraits through people's windows during lockdown
As the country continues to ease out of lockdown, these stunning portraits by Caroline White might raise a smile. Taken through people's windows in Los Angeles, inside their own homes, they show the strength and often the sadness we've all experienced during this difficult time.
A branding portrait and travel photographer, Caroline's income relied 80% of her getting on an aeroplane to work on assignment; but Covid-19 brought her business to a grinding halt, so she decided to get creative.
"When quarantine set in, I began capturing my friends and neighbours in quarantine, through their windows, even getting hired by clients new and old to document these moments and memories," she tells Creative Boom. "This project has made me grow as an artist, helped me feel connected to others while still staying safe (including my great aunt and photojournalist Margaret Bourke White), and given me a bit of income as an artist."
Through this incredibly moving series, we not only get a glimpse at the beautiful LA sunsets, swaying palm trees and mid-century homes, we see men and women, both young and old, from all walks of life, keeping their spirits up or having moments of reflection as we come to terms with the pandemic and its impact.
"It's my hope that more photographers will do these types of shoots and that the public will value them and help support photographers," Caroline adds.
