Social Distancing - A photo documentation
by Petr Maur, Ottawa Canada
The world has changed rapidly with the appearance of the Covid-19 pandemic. We also had to adapt our plans for Canada Day to the situation and have created a virtual version of our event for you. It is therefore only natural that we would also like to take up the subject of pandemics artistically in this context. The Canadian photographer Petr Maur has documented with his pictures the topic of social distancing in his home town Ottawa. These impressive contemporary documents have not been shown in any exhibition so far and can be seen on our website for the first time for a wider public.
