It sounds like a sitcom, but it’s Neil Kramer’s life. 

The Queens-based photographer has spent the past 10 months holed up in a small, two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment with his 80-year-old mother — and his ex-wife.

“It was supposed to be a few weeks,” he told The Post of the cringe-worthy living arrangement. “My mother was supposed to be in Florida, but that fell through and my ex-wife’s place in Los Angeles flooded, so they both came to New York.”

Kramer has been posting the often-hilarious results of the “stressful” situation on his Instagram account, where he has more than 8,000 followers who commiserate with the trio’s relatable trials and tribulations — laundry, weight gain, loneliness — throughout the pandemic. 

“At a certain point, I suggested we go into family therapy,” said Kramer of his kooky COVID-19 pod. Instead, he took his photo equipment, which he normally uses in his job as a street photographer, and began to stage elaborate shoots with his mother, Elaine, and his ex-wife, Sophia Lansky, a Hebrew and Russian language translator. The two divorced about three years ago after about two decades of marriage.

“This became self-therapy for the three of us,” said Kramer, who captures both mundane and memorable moments in the apartment: competing for space in the bathroom, anxiously watching pandemic press conferences on TV and unearthing old memories.
