My "Keep Going New York !!" project focusses on the resilience of my fellow New Yorkers, on moments of normalcy under exceptional circumstances during the challenging year of the pandemic in 2020. The positive attitude in most of the photographs of my chosen hometown show New Yorkers doing what they always do: They keep going !!
