Out of Office: A Survey of Our New Work Lives

Yellowed newspapers. A mouse who met its end on a glue trap. Wilted plants.

These were the scenes we photographed this summer at three New York City offices — including our own — amid a pandemic that has left millions of people out of work and millions more working from home.

At The New York Times’s Midtown Manhattan headquarters, to see a newsroom silenced during the busiest news cycle of our lifetime was both eerie and poignant. The dusty, yellowed newspapers piled high on desks, floors, coffee tables — most of them dated March — gave the space around them an almost sepia tone.

RSK: Very interesting percentages. I especially like the one where most people said they would move to a different city or state if they could continue to work remote.
