A retired professional photographer living in Malone, New York, aims to fight fears of the coronavirus crisis with a daily dose of joy and wonder. Rick Auger, who still takes photos as a hobby, recently sent this e-mail message to everyone on his contact list:
“Hi my friends, I will send out a new photograph everyday until this virus is no longer a threat to our health and welfare. I will attempt to make this a bright light in our days of darkness.”
Enjoy a sampling of Auger’s daily photos in the gallery below, plus Paul Larson’s interview with the photographer here.
