Interview: Photographer Lifts Spirits With Viral Video Of Quarantine Date

Ben Meiselas interviews photographer Jeremy Cohen and the two discuss his viral video where he asks a mystery woman, now identified as Tori Cignarella, who he spotted on a nearby rooftop, on a date by sending a drone to her with his phone number.

The video received millions of views and was profiled in national news articles for its authentic, and creative, display of love and affection during tough times.

Cohen went on to post two other videos. In Part 2 of his posts, Jeremy sits on his balcony, and Tori on her roof, and two have a date where they enjoy a meal together and each other’s company through FaceTime. Most recently, in Part 3, Jeremy and Tori meet and practice safe social distancing by Jeremy wearing a bubble suit. Hilarity ensues.

Ben and Jeremy discuss these videos, their inspiration, and Jeremy’s Quarantine Rooftop Culture Series profiled in New York Magazine with one of Jeremy’s photographs currently on the cover. Jeremy also gives uplifting advice, and dating advice, to the millions of Americans quarantined at home.
