Post human dogs 2020, photography

Post human dogs is a new series that I started during the COVID phase here in New York. Every day I try to make 5k steps to stay healthy and sane. During my walks I realized that the almost deserted city resembles my Bye Bye Camera (www.byebye.camera) pictures that I have been taking since last year – no humans on the streets. During my walks I came across dog owners. The application uses neural networks to erase humans from the picture but the camera keeps the human traces as well as the dogs. I compare these visual traces to surreal artifacts of a speculative scenario that is post-human.
