From Outside is a view into the life of people while they adapt to life with COVID-19. These portraits of people and families are photographed from outside looking in and show a cross section of Canadians that live in urban, rural or suburban areas and represent many walks of life, from CEOs to artists, as they sit in their homes and pass time. The photos are meant to show that no matter who you are or what you do, we have to deal with COVID-19 the same way – by mostly staying inside and social distancing when we need to be outside.
These photos show life; they show us as working collectively to solve a problem. They show happiness, confusion, togetherness, solitude, loneliness and the resilience of our communities, our cities, and our nation. They help us remember the challenges we face as a collective.
