The New York City photographers are trying to capture the living history of the coronavirus pandemic in the hard-hit city, once the epicenter of the COVID-19 trauma in America.

Pabón is a native New Yorker with deep roots in the action sports industry and music scene domestically and internationally. Cousins is from northern New Jersey and now is a Brooklyn man who travels around with two cameras; he told Fox News: “I shoot my friends. I shoot strangers. I shoot small businesses trying to make ends meet.I try and capture the everyday moments of life and human emotion and tell stories.”

Pabón, who lives now in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, and drives his car as to avoid subways, took a break before realizing he should document this historical moment. “For the first month of the shelter in place, it was hard to bring myself to leave and shoot. People would assume that the city being empty would motivate me and be out in this once in a lifetime occurrence, the city empty, but it was the opposite, I felt like it was a shell of itself and I wanted no part of it. What makes New York City is the people that live and work here, that to me, is what NYC is - Now I shoot people that I know and have stayed to try and make some sense of the new ‘norm,’ be it trying to adapt and run their business or just how they feel. This is home and we got to hunker down and try our best to live through this.”
