How COVID Changed Us: A Pandemic in Photographs (Virtual)
10 March 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
One year ago the pandemic forced us apart. It drove us out of the classroom and office; it shut down theaters and bars. Streets were empty and emergency rooms were overwhelmed by people falling ill. It also revealed existing inequities. Those already struggling battled isolation, a lack of resources, profound levels of stress and deep personal loss.
In the early months of the pandemic, as most of us had no choice but to remain at home, photojournalists were often the first and only eyes on the ground, witnessing the impact of the coronavirus on nearly every aspect of our lives. Since then, photojournalists have documented our struggle to find a way forward.
Callie Crossley, host of Under the Radar, Basic Black and GBH News commentator, brings four local photojournalists to a roundtable discussion to examine the pandemic through their photos, stories and reflections.
Joining Callie will be four members of the Boston Press Photographers Association: independent photojournalist Angela Rowlings, Reuters Senior Photographer Brian Snyder, Boston Globe Photographer Jessica Rinaldi and GBH’s Director of Photography, Meredith Nierman.
This event is part of an entire day of reflection and storytelling conducted by GBH News. On March 10, 2021 we mark one year from the day when Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker declared a state of emergency. See the entire day of special programming on GBHNews.org and use the hashtag #AYearApart to follow our stories on social media.
