18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Masks and backpacks

This simple, unedited picture shows exactly how Americans are living during the pandemic. When people look back at this time in history, they will know this picture was taken during the pandemic because of the masks hanging on the door. Additionally, it provides insight into how we continued to move forward with our lives. The laundry room is where so much of our lives take place, backpacks, calendar, alarm system, and now, masks.
