During the pandemic, face masks have become a ubiquitous part of our environment, impacting our thoughts, interactions, and relationships with others. In January, DAVA Youth worked remotely to create a series of photographs featuring face masks in different settings. Their art explores how wearing a mask changes our faces, which can feel invasive or protective, and even allow us to create new personalities.

Photographer Preston Utley adds to this exhibition with a series of black and white photographs documenting mask-wearing and other desolate scenes from the pandemic.
