Description (Dublin Core)

If you were around on May 30, 2020, you would know that it really did feel like the world was ending. Cities across the country were ablaze with rebellious fire, police and military covered the streets, bridges were lifted. All this during a global pandemic. To be there to be a part of it all, it felt like the world was ending.

So, what do you do when the world is ending?

There are many answers to this question and while I chose to answer it in multiple ways, one of the primary answers was this: documentation.

I documented what felt like the end of the world. Through words, videos, photographs, tweets. Any way I could.

But through documenting the end of the world, I encountered some of the most beautiful moments. Moments of peace, of beauty, of love, of collective and mutual care.

One of those moments is pictured here.
