20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Family Matters

This was taken in April 2020, shortly after Toronto's first Covid lockdown. When I think of disasters, I think of a hurricane, a tsunami ... where you can see the destruction. With covid, the destruction is quiet, the families ripped apart, the homes being wrecked, the businesses closing. On the outside everything is quiet. But my kitchen... it looks like that hurricane went through it! Despite all the challenges, our little family is in it together. I am so grateful for that.
