When the World Stopped: Victoria Elizabeth Shields
December 2, 2021 - January 2, 2022FREE
WHEN THE WORLD STOPPED depicts my experience working as a news photographer at the beginning of the pandemic. My images portray how, overnight, the busy streets of New York fell silent. As the feelings we all were dealing with surfaced in my photographs, I captured humans doing what I do best in times of crisis … banding together and helping each other out.
