Collin J. Rae | Pandemic Portraits

January 3-February 28 | Franklin Gallery, Third Floor

The “Pandemic Portraits” series was born out of the desire to connect with other creatives whilst in insolation and quarantine and as a way of converting the psychological realities of the time. Subsequently, “Pandemic Portraits vol. 1” was Allen Buddha Press’ number one seller in 2022. Vol. 2 came in at number 4.

Collin J. Rae is a Michigan born visual and aural artist currently living and working in Northern Virginia. His photos have been published by TASCHEN Books, European Photography Magazine, Secret Magazine, and many others. His “asemic” works have been featured in various online and physical journals. Current projects include the Pandemic Portrait photo series.
