Denise Crew - Mira Sorvino
"In August 2020, People asked me to photograph Mira Sorvino and her family for a story about how families were coping during quarantine. I FaceTimed with Mira a few days prior to get a tour of her home and yard that were both in the midst of a stalled renovation, understand the direction of the sun to her property, and to hear about her family’s locked-down lifestyle. They are all quite active and play a lot of sports together so I wanted to try to capture that energy. For everyone’s Covid safety, we agreed that I would photograph them from at least six feet away but the challenge was capturing a family of six playing sports outside in a way that still showed the intimacy of their family bond. At the shoot, I loved how close her kids were to each other, and as a boy mom, I was particularly enamored with how kind her boys were."
