Studio 2.8 Documenting The 2020 Corona Virus Pandemic, People Living On The Street Outside Million Dollar Condominiums On Seattle's Second Avenue
This Studio 2.8 photography 2020 corona virus pandemic documentary photograph was produced in Seattle, WA during the month of May 2020, along Seattle's Second Avenue, in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood. In this Studio 2.8 photography photograph, produced outside a luxury condominium tower in Seattle's belltown neighborhood, outside the base of the luxury housing tower, a homeless person sits, houseless, with what appears to be all of this person's belongings piled onto a grocery store shopping cart.
The homeless person in this Studio 2.8 photograph was holding tightly onto a shopping cart piled high to overflowing with bags of what appear mostly to be clothing, along with a few survival essentials, in addition to wooden sticks protruding from it that seem to have been used as a makeshift rack system on which to hang the many bags of materials overflowing it everywhere. The homeless person beside the grocery cart, who's face is hidden in this Studio 2.8 photograph so that the person remains unidentifiable, seems typical of the intensely forlorn looking affect of many of Seattle's thousands and thousands of people who live destitute and houseless on Seattle's streets, often directly amidst extreme wealth and affluence. Sometimes the juxtaposition of people sleeping on cardboard mats outside luxury condominium towers has the "feel" to it of a scene from a science-fiction novel.
The scene in this photograph represents just one of several aspects of the manner in which the Studio 2.8 photography service is documenting the impacts of the 2020 COVID-19 corona virus pandemic as they appear around the American Pacific Northwest with painstaking detail using both extensive photography and in-depth video. Surely reasonable people must wonder how it is that during the virus pandemic crisis and government "stay at home" orders, these thousands people living outdoors have managed not to contaminate each other with the COVID-19 virus, and why the coronavirus has not spread rampantly among these large populations of people living on sidewalks and in tents along America's city streets.
