Kenneth_Ferriera/2020 Champ

A late night text chain from May 24 between Kenneth Ferriera, the photographer, and Jenny Welsh lies next to a puzzle that was left unfinished due to quarantine on Wednesday, June 3, 2020, In Lincoln, Nebraska. Small everyday objects in my life suddenly took on new meanings. Puzzles are something that Jenny and I did while we drank coffee and talked about our days. Now that same puzzle sits unfinished, missing the pieces it needs to make it complete. Jenny has been the rock that supported me through everything. She is there for me when no one else has been. When I feel down she lifts me up, if my mind is in a dark place she has been the light that shows me a way out. Just speaking to her gives me back a little bit of the normality that has been taken from me.
