Kenneth_Ferriera/2020 Champ

Kenneth Ferriera, the photographer, holds Jenny Welsh in his arms early in the morning on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, in Lincoln Nebraska. She drove three hours the previous night from her internship to come to see me. Jenny and I didn’t see each other for over two months save for maybe a drive to Omaha when I was working. She had been in my life every day for close to a year and then one day she wasn’t. When restrictions started to loosen in Nebraska the first person I saw was her. Now, she will drive up to stay with me for a day, but we will end up doing nothing since everything around us is closed. It doesn’t matter to us, we are just happy to see one another. Even if it is only for a few short hours. Just to hold her again is enough for me.
