The Factor in progress. After getting supported with a Denkzeit grant by the Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen (Cultural Foundation of the Free State of Saxony), I made a preprint of a book. This interim step is a tool to understand the sequence of the pictures in a book format. The Factor is a compilation of news, advice, phenomena and other outcomes of the current situation regarding the coronavirus. The project is a mix of unpublished photography from my archive and new material produced for the series. The Factor evolved during stayathome.photography with Iacopo Pasqui and was part of the exhibition #ICPConcerned: Global Images for Global Crisis at the International Center of Photography, New York 2020/2021.
