THEME SUMMARY

Grandé Beach, Mar Del Plata, Argentina, 2014

COVID-19 suddenly made its appearance at the end of 2019. This unprecedented pandemic spread around the Earth instantaneously and put the world population into a perpetual anxiety. Our lives drastically changed and led by the idea of “New normal”, we were obliged to look for new ways of living. How can this historical social phenomenon be recorded through photography. The unusual cityscape in which our combat against this invisible virus is evident, is almost symbolic of our new lifestyle. Show us the thoughts and the individual accounts of this age with corona that each and every one of us is experiencing through images as we overcome these hard times.
[Submission Period] from March 2 to May 10
