Portraits in COVID Times: Documenting a Nation in Change

Event Details

This event is running from 3 December 2020 until 1 May 2021. It is next occurring on April 18, 2021

The photographs featured in this exhibition were taken between March and October 2020. They show how Canadians are living through this significant moment in time. Represented are a selection submitted to the Canada COVID Portrait online project, which launched in April 2020, inviting citizen and professional photographers alike to participate with the goal to create a visual record of this transformative period. The resulting exhibition touches on all aspects of our changed lives – family, work, leisure, sports, culture, religion, celebrations, health, transportation and political engagement. Each photograph speaks to the ingenuity, kindness, grief, humour, hope and creativity that have emerged from our shared pandemic experience.

The black and white images on Harbourfront Centre’s façade will be exhibited through early winter of 2021. Additional Portraits in COVID Times: Documenting a Nation in Change images are on display at 318 Queens Quay West (Rees Street Parking Lot) through spring of 2021.
