Frontline by Lili Almog: A Tribute to New York Healthcare Workers
To acknowledge and thank the sacred work of the frontline healthcare personnel, every day at 7pm, during their shift changes, thank you sessions were held citywide. In the first week of April, Photographer Lili Almog joined a session, first as a spectator, then with her camera to record these touching moments. For the next two months Almog met many local nurses, travel nurses, technicians and young doctors who, despite being exhausted, gladly cooperated with her. And they still do, in the merciful pause, between work and respite.
In addition to her work on her Frontline project, Almog is collaborating with publishing House Kehrer Verlag in developing the book Betweenness – a project that stems from the series The Space Within. The publication is coming in 2021.
