COVID-19 kept everyone close to home this year. It made things difficult for all kinds of careers, and it had its crack at photojournalism, changing the way the world looked through the photos we take. The year 2020 will be marked in history lessons with visuals of empty shelves, abandoned public spaces and masks on everyone you see. The pandemic will leave a mark on life as we know it for years to come.
Here are the photos left over from the COVID-19 Pandemic.
