April 2020

Selections of the best images produced on assignment or for stock from the month of April.

The majority of news assignments covered in April all evolved around the Coronavirus and its implications on public life. For PhillyVoice I covered the the daily life of Philadelphians on that rare day with spring-like temperatures. My own block suddenly became the focus of the local news-cameras when after years of neglect a front porch at the end of the street collapsed. All residents made it out unharmed and a crew secured the site in no-time.

The month ended with an announcement of representatives of Safehouse of an (tentative) opening of a supervised injection facility in South Philadelphia. A plan that ultimately ended up in the freezer after generating some backslash from local residents.
