What does daily life look like during a global pandemic? That’s one of the questions we wrestled with during the development of F Stop: Shelter. 

After the Stay At Home Order, one word emerged from our shared experience: shelter. We decided to leave the term’s interpretation up to the creators.

The contest’s 46 photos and stories have produced a moving portrait of kindness, hope and resiliency. Thank you to the participants and to our contest sponsor, Camera Casino for offering their expertise and providing prizes.

You may have seen the F Stop: Shelter video on the library’s social media channels, but in case you missed it, we’re sharing it here to further showcase the winning photos and other submissions. You can access the full exhibit on the library’s website. Click on the photo to read the story behind the image.

F Stop: Shelter will eventually be published as a book and entered into the library’s permanent collection.
