This series was shot at Barcelona Cathedral and the surrounding area right before the pandemic. Barcelona was one of the first hotspots in the Covid-19 outbreak. The series idea was originally based upon the theme of "Surrender." We were unaware of the ominous times ahead. Since then, I've retitled the series to a more appropriate message - "Never Surrender." I met Ira Chil, my model, at the Gala Awards in Barcelona. We are both photographers and award winners in the 14th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards. Upon our meeting at the Gala Awards exhibition, we decided upon the following shoot.
