In this project I am telling the story of three months in which my wife and I sheltered in-place during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. It’s one shared by millions, but our own day-to-day lives together in our condo in Lowell is a story that is unique to us. It’s about the daily emotional and logistical rollercoaster, and the sadness and frustrations of being isolated, albeit together, from family and friends. It’s also about seeing and appreciating the beauty in one’s own environment when other options have been taken away.
My work is about the people, things, and places that surround me and define who I am. I make images of the small corners of my life that attract me. I am drawn to scenes of beauty, emotion, and of the stories that are there to be told.
Adrien Bisson is a Boston-based photographer with over a decade of experience in commercial and editorial work. Having studied music at Berklee, his personal work explores portraiture, dance, urban landscape, and observations on everyday life.
Adrien has exhibited in solo and two-person shows at the Whistler Museum and the Loading Dock Gallery (Lowell, MA), as well as the Parish Center for the Arts (Westford, MA). He has exhibited work in juried group shows at those venues, as well as the Brush Gallery and the ALL Gallery (Lowell), the Plymouth Center for the Arts (Plymouth, MA), and the Black Box Gallery (Portland, OR). His work has also appeared in Shots Magazine and several times on the Curated Fridge (Somerville, MA).
His current work examines his home-town of Exeter, NH, and his current one, Lowell, MA. He is interested in the ways in which they have both influenced his life, interests, and work, and how each place continues to change; Exeter, from a small country town that has become more upscale and suburban, and Lowell, from an industrial revolution manufacturing center to a gateway city with a vibrant art community.
