Documenting the pandemic through photography


The McCord Museum is launching a photography project today to document the daily lives of Montrealers during the pandemic. The project consists of two parts, one participatory with the citizen initiative Framing Everyday Life: Stories of Confinement, the other professional with a photography assignment giving carte blanche to photographer Michel Huneault.

“Around the world, we’re going through an ordeal that will leave its mark on history forever, an unprecedented time that must be documented. As Montreal’s social history museum and museum of photography, we’ve given Michel Huneault a new mission to bear witness to this historic moment. Equally important to us are the accounts of Montrealers as they go through this period of isolation and questioning. This is why we‘re inviting the public to share their stories of the COVID-19 period with us through photography,” said Suzanne Sauvage, President and CEO of the McCord Museum.
