Seeing Essential Workers through a New Lens
COVID-19 and the response to stop the spread of the virus have reminded us all just how much our community relies on our essential workers. Nurses, bus drivers, farmers, teachers, firefighters, childcare workers, doctors, and government officials, to name just a few, have supported us and ensured that our needs are met and our families remain healthy and cared for.
This photography project, created by Operation Technician Iz Balleto and Teaching Artist and Curator in Residence JaQuanne LeRoy, brings faces and voices to the many people who have kept our community going through this pandemic. This campaign explores what essential work entails and honors those individuals who continue to dedicate their lives to it every day.
