Show Notes

[@Covidstreet](https://bit.ly/cvidst) The Covid crisis is unlike anything before it; global, terrifying, and with the potential to leave an earthshattering legacy which outlasting even the harm the virus itself causes. We don't even know how far it'll spread, or what it'll do, but already some are talking about saddling the next generation with the cost. As photographers we cannot take up work at a field hospital, but [@Covidstreet](https://bit.ly/cvidst) is something we not only can do, but might regret if we didn't. At Tanya Nagar's suggestion, myself and Tom Clabots have joined forces to found Covid Street, a project by which street photographers can share thier work, their experiences, and, ultimately, to create a book to raise money for those recovering from the covid. In this special episode, we discuss exactly how we hope to do that, how far we've got already (again, please follow the Instagram account), and how you can join in. ## Links ### The Instagram Account [Covidstreet](https://www.instagram.com/covidstreet/) ### Mission Statement Mission Statement for [Covid Street Photography](https://notthegear.com/covid-street-photography-standing-united/). ### The Instagram Book [52 Assignments: Instagram Photography](https://amzn.to/2ybp3e8) by Adam Juniper, featuring Tanya Nagar on page 64/65. ### The Winogrand Post Is Winogrand's shooting style acceptable in this day an age?
