Concert Posters - Quarantine - P. A. Nolte
1/ In silhouette, a man with a shovel stands under a tree. Beside him is a small cross.
Caption: I buried my dog under the tree in my backyard.
Caption: He got sick so fast... I didn't know what else to do.
2/ From the back of a van, men in hazard suits pour onto the main thoroughfare of a small town. The citizens make various attempts to avoid the men, or at least get out of their way.
Caption: When Mr. Friedman got sick, the men in suits came.
3/ A crowd on the edge of town. At the border, more men in hazard suits, and several nondescript men in nondescript black suits.
Caption: They told us we couldn't leave. That we were quarantined.
4/ Rioting. The same peaceful citizens from before have turned their home into a war zone. Hiding with his back pressed up against the wall of an alley is the man with the shovel.
Caption: There was no going back after that.
5/ A wall of shipping crates erected on the perimeter of the town. Train tracks still pass alongside the wall, but it's clear that nothing penetrates it.
Caption: I just miss my dog.
