Friday taunted Lexingtonians with summer-like sunshine and back-yard barbeque smells. And the counting of days until the next baby is born. While taking these pictures, we found ourselves doing things neither of us has done before, like chasing a beautiful white dog by the name of Isaac down a windy road. (Isaac turned out to be a frequent escape artist and also deaf so calling after him didn’t work—he was apprehended by a couple of neighborhood runners.) We met people we hadn’t met before. We were believed to be siblings by a 5-year-old and we argued about who looked older.

Lexington in the Time of COVID-19 is an artwork about people practicing social distancing at a time of a deadly virus. And also offering kindness.

Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova capture photographs at the periphery of American culture, where drag queens, discarded couches, and abandoned motel signs exist.
