The Journal is a global collaborative project of more than 400 women* photographers documenting their lives during the coronavirus pandemic. In mid March, we turned the cameras on ourselves, our families, on intimate moments and private spaces. Through this personal lens, we bring nuance to the way the current pandemic is being covered. Organized into 45 groups, we are taking turns to post our work on Instagram, and respond to different themes, which are curated by women editors from international media. The Covid-19 pandemic is a historical event and the change it brought to our lives has already shown that it is just the beginning of a series of everlasting changes. The Journal was initiated by Charlotte Schmitz and Hannah Yoon out of the Women Photograph community. The Journal exhibition in Athens, was curated by Myrto Papadopoulos, photographer and member of The Journal.
