Lisa, Tom, Riley, and Kieran With Lucky and A Chicken

Lisa and Tom moved to Lexington when Kieran was 2 weeks old. They watched him and his older brother Riley every week, Monday through Friday—until the virus hit. After that, they didn’t see their grandkids for an entire month. On the day we took this picture, Kieran and Riley’s dad had to go back to work at the University of Kentucky Hospital, which is why Kieran and Riley were visiting their grandparents. The boy’s father was expected to quarantine for 14 days after his one day of work, so Lisa and Tom didn’t know when they’d next see their grandkids.

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.
