San Diego Public Library’s ‘Snapshot’ project captures images of the COVID-19 pandemic

San Diego Public Library’s ‘Snapshot’ project captures images of the COVID-19 pandemic

The San Diego Public Library (SDPL) has launched a program to document the experiences of San Diegans during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Snapshot: A Photo Journal of Life During the Pandemic” will collect and archive photographs taken during this historic time. 

SDPL is asking people to share photographs of how the pandemic has impacted their lives. The photographs may show the practical side of life such as social distancing, telecommuting or remote learning, or they may be images that capture strength, humor and hope experienced over the last year. 

Submissions are limited to 10 images per person and the deadline to submit is June 30, 2021. Each submission should include a short description of the photo. 

Information on how to submit photos can be found on SDPL’s Snapshot web page. The photographs will be part of the San Diego Public Library’s Special Collections Department’s photograph and digital archive collections and may be displayed on the SDPL website.
