The journalistic chronicle by iMEdD capturing the first days of a “new normal”
After an almost reflexive first-days recording, immediately after the lockdown lift, “Present” are found again in public spaces, experiencing a “new normal”. Journalists, photojournalists and film-makers comprising iMEdD‘s network of associates, travelled to places that hardly remind the pre-pandemic era to record everyday life after the lockdown.
The stories of those who were “present” everyday in the previous months travelled to cities across Greece and are now succeeded by new stories about the day after. Schools, churches, airports, ports, hair salons make up the journalistic documentary of the day after that is already posted on public spaces and online at parontes.imedd.org.
