Pandemic Isolation

Story of the Week #785: TUESDAY May 4, 2021: 'PANDEMIC ISOLATION' by award winning ZUMA Photographer Rick D'Elia: The coronavirus pandemic is causing an epidemic of loneliness and social isolation among adults, carrying with it significant health and emotional risks, according to the United Health Foundation. Arizona based ZUMA photojournalist, Rick D'Elia felt the need to begin to record this extraordinary time to show what life looks like during the pandemic, with its barriers of physical distance, including 10 feet or more, masks and sometimes glass windows. Rick captured simple moments of families and individuals, largely at home, while coping with these new seemingly harsh and isolating rules. The images became his way of coping and, perhaps, understanding how to process this unusual time. As we begin emerging from this unprecedented event, people are going outside, relaxing and playing more, looking for the end of the crisis, looking for a release, looking for something to celebrate. Welcome to 'PANDEMIC ISOLATION'
