Photographer and illustrator Sean Freeman, with creative partner Eve Steben, were commissioned to create the latest Time Magazine cover on the upcoming COVID Winter. When discussing their process for this cover, Sean and Eve shared:
Creating a cover about lockdown while in lockdown is an interesting artistic & production challenge, where constraints can suddenly transform into a creative springboard, and where collecting a material vault as big as a house comes very handy. We created this special cover against the clock, within our own small isolation bubble – using our own windows, as well as a tremendous amount of prop snow (which for a bit felt quite festive), shot during a grey, but rather warm London day. Needless to say, the neighbours were curious.
