A Collaboration Between
Boyd's Station and
This project chronicles Margo Reed’s view of the COVID-19 pandemic through a cling-wrapped camera lens. As people across the globe wrap themselves in masks and gloves for protection from COVID-19 germs, the cling-wrap keeps her camera clean, too.
To illustrate the separation and suffocation many face in this time, Reed photographs life safely, wrapped and protected, from a distance, as it is the only way many of us see each other safely right now.
Shortly after the onset of the pandemic, Reed left her Philadelphia apartment to spend time with family in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Like many, she visited elderly family members by waving through windows, talking on the phone, and visits outdoors.
Reed continues to safely document noteworthy events in her rural hometown and she challenges herself and viewers to seek interest in this new way of life as she makes pictures in a new way, too.

The Villages: Dueling Golf Cart Rallies
Donald Trump is popular in The Villages. This is evident with the amount of people that arrived at Lake Miona Recreation Center to participate in the golf cart parade. There’s not an accurate number for the amount of people who attended the event on September 23rd, but the oversized parking lot was packed to the brim with golf carts.
Muslims in Hawaii celebrate Eid-ul-Adha by sacrificing cattle in the rural countryside – something that is unusual to find in Hawaii’s landscape. While this is a common ritual to find in a Muslim country on the Islamic holiday, it’s unusual in an isolated state like Hawaii.
