One can't help but wonder if the focus of this collection, James Nares' video, Street captures scenes we may never see again because of the Coronavirus Pandemic. This video shows--as the artist himself describes, "a city full of people frozen in time, caught Pompeii-like, at a particular moment of thought, expression, or activity." Will we ever be on the street that way again?
