I took my drone and photographed people in their homes through their windows and on their terraces. It's a 100% zero-human-contact way to see how people are going crazy during quarantine times.
When Lithuania went under lockdown, all my photography jobs in advertising were canceled, events postponed or canceled, and I was sitting without any job and thinking, "what the heck is going on and how can I solve this puzzle?" Eventually, I knew that I needed to do some interesting photos, but this social distance thing was a tricky thing. At first, I thought of offering to shoot people with a telephoto lens, but then I remembered I use drone photography at weddings and the drone is a totally zero-human-contact way to capture things. I shot a few of my friends, the photo idea gained a lot of likes, and the project took off.
I started this photo series to give people a chance to brighten their day in this negative corona information environment. I believe that these drone photos remind everyone that sitting quarantined and working from home can be fun too. And, of course, to remind everybody that you need to keep your social distance during these times.
