Ron Soliman and his wife Bless are a wedding photographer, but pretty much all the weddings he had scheduled have been canceled or postponed. So he wanted to find a way to give back and show his support for those working on the front line to fight coronavirus and decided to use his talent with a camera. Now the couple is doing free porch photo sessions with frontline workers and their families.
They snap families in Delaware, New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia, taking pictures while social distancing by standing on the edge of their yards. Ron has the subjects pose in their work uniforms and the photos are in black and white because he says he wants to make them feel like timeless images.
"I want people to remember that these are frontline workers during a pandemic who made a lot of sacrifices, and they will go down in history," he explains.
