Isolation . . . Week 1 . . . Old Town Temecula, California . . . This part of town is usually bustling with people, especially on a nice day . . . this isolated chair sums up how it is now
My first... PANDEMIC
Social distancing also means no social time for this little guy. Can\'t wait to play with his friends again... @svilaphotography
Chinatown, Melbourne. Just prior to Stage3 restrictions being brought in I managed to walk the streets one last time. The silence was deafening as I walked Chinatown. This laneway felt like a movie set.

When you’re missing your best friend during isolation, you have to get creative... We are lucky to have wonderful neighbours with children similar ages to our own, it’s a fairly common occurrence for the kids to wander back and forth across the bridge between our two properties at will. When we first went into self isolation one of the biggest disappointments for Jedda, 8, was no more crossing the bridge to hang with her mates. However, the kindness and resilience of kids never ceases to amaze me. When the little girl next door heard of Jedda’s situation (we had to isolate quite early) she bagged up some of her toys and delivered them to our mail box. Jedda has played with the toys non-stop and although they miss their face-to-face hangs, they are making do with bridge hangs for now. Kindness and creativity just makes everything that little bit easier right now. @bookenblend
I miss the ocean as all the beaches are currently closed. I have taken the water for granted and now realise that once this is all over, I am going to learn to swim properly.
COVID-19 was already in the news, but we still couldn\'t figure out what it all meant. I\'d organised a photo session with a few photography friends, Craig Stampfli who\'d driven all the way down from Brisbane and the amazing Peter Levshin stopping in on his way home from Burma, heading to Los Angeles. It was a glorious morning - so many more images but this was one of the first in the set.
Gym, hair dressers, dental and travel, one thing at a time, the world would unravel. Birthdays, weddings and funerals too, new government rules we must stick to. For some we lost jobs which didn’t feel nice, and fresh fruit and veg was suddenly overpriced. Social distancing, affection on hold, otherwise this virus will never be controlled. Emergency staff working around the clock, gloves, gowns and masks continue to be re-stocked. The sun still rises, and most certainly still sets, trust me when this is all over, our efforts will be of no regrets. Things will be tough for a little while longer, but just think at the end, we’ll be so much stronger. Do your part and just stay inside, wash your hands often and you can keep your pride. @alicepye
Most mornings I would encounter people walking, riding or fishing in this peaceful location. Now, it has a lonely silence. Even the birds are fewer in numbers and more solitary than ever. As I watched this seagull fly by, I reflected on how small my world was becoming. davisonpam
Her isolation. Jump. In this hard time, we need to never give up.
Isolation, giving us more time to spend on our hobbies and passions. For my husband this means an opportunity to get back to working on a project car, and late nights in the shed are no problem when he’s saving over an hour each morning in travel time by working from home. It’s good to find the silver linings. @underthegumtrees
There are so many layers and stories to this image, physically and metaphorically.It tells the story of my isolation and the effects of COVID-19 on myself and my community.As with so many larger, older women, I have body issues and very rarely get in front of the camera. It is already clear that the world will be a different place when we come out of isolation, and if I am to thrive, I need to grow, move and change with it.I chose to show my day through my amazing view, starting off with sunrise, moving to midday and ordering in food .. all with the iso stand back no contact delivery and ending the day relaxing with the iPad.I am normally a light touch landscape photographer, Photoshop is not my happy place, which means this is imperfect in many ways, which makes it perfectly imperfect!@towander

Self Iso around me...100-200mt street of commercial shops near where I\'m living. It used to be a crowded Street anytime during the day and even more during the night. All of the shops, have got something written in front of their doors. 25 shots (there was not enough space to add more) together in a collage to document what\'s happening around me. Of course, the same situation, is happening in all over the world.

Social isolation drove me to the pantry for inspiration. Parts of this image remind me of what I believe a virus looks like - little droplets, some spreading, some contained. If nothing else Corona virus has taught us how to keep ourselves contained to stop the spread. @tafly1963.

@cherishartzThe Conversation RoomInitially I wanted to show me, in the room in the house I spend most of my time in when I\'m at home. Its my peaceful place, but lately there is a little too much peace.I call it the Conversation Room. It is where lots of discussions are held. Life plans are made, meetings take place and clients get to view their photos for the first time there. But most of all its a place where family & friends usually gather when they visit. It holds lots of wonderful memories.Of course, I have lots of conversations with the A-Team on the couch over long cup of teas... (they are an agreeable mob).Me in the Conversation Room.
Briohnykennedy Sunrise sculpture - a local artist has created sculptures from driftwood which washed up during the storms earlier in 2020. Now it’s a place where locals take the kids or just wander around as part of their daily exercise during these socially isolated days.
@nichollstoby The Horse Whisper -Isolation due to COVID-19 means that we get to spend time with animals that we care about. Here, Eloise Long (aka \"horse whisper\") spends quality time riding, caring and feeding a horse named Bobby #isolation2020.

@aus.life.style Spending more time at home means getting creative with the camera! I hand painted this message with my i-phone light using a long exposure. It was later featured on the National News.
@isaactmccarthy New Zealand is currently enduring the strictest Covid-19 lockdown in the world. The positive aspect to this has been the dramatic reduction in transmission rate. However, citizens have born the brunt of isolation from family and friends for over a month. This moment was captured in Christchurch, wherein neighbours Betty and Csilla catch up over a month\'s worth of stories and news, all the while maintaining the stipulate two metre social distancing policy.

@theresalee7027 To me this image encapsulates the sense of chaos many of us felt, especially in the first few of weeks of social isolation. Many of us felt our world had been turned upside down. Fear and panic took hold. Our lockdown had come into effect two weeks prior to me capturing this moment in Emily and her brother’s Sydney café. Emily said her way of trying to stay positive through the Covid-19 pandemic was to do handstands.
@peterbaxterpics Week one of isolation - out came the jigsaw puzzles that have been sitting in the cupboard for a long time waiting to be done.

My instagram ID: kuma_photoshoot Every piece of photo shows independent action from those events happening in our real life. Social phenomena like snatched toilet paper, social distancing policy and prohibition of dining out are happening in Australia at this moment.This is the main idea I want to transfer: public panic and excessive and blind self-protection behind. The model who wears a mask made of toilet paper makes the photo ironic. Some activities seem like a contradiction, such as eating and wearing mask at same time. The masks do not need to be used in these situations.Meanwhile, this group of photos can be comprehended from multiple perspectives. The Asian man in the photo represents every overseas student and worker in foreign countries who wants to but cannot go back home. What they can do is to take care of themselves. Excessive self-protection is unnecessary seemingly; actually, they are forced to do so.I hope that when people look at these photos many years later, they can think of this global “epidemic” campaign that every of us once experienced.

whitney_books My daughter and I were visiting my mother who is in a nursing home. My mother is, of course, quarantined. The only was we can visit her is through a closed window. I took this shot of my daughter looking at my mother (her grandmother) through the window. I thought it captures some of the sadness and isolation that this pandemic has caused. Thank you for your consideration.

@theresalee7027 Sydney, May 2020This suburban street scene encapsulates many elements which metaphorically portray people\'s need to feel connected with the outside world. Especially at this time.
@melsinclair_au Quarantine, a word previously only used in the direst of emergencies. I wanted to make a picture to mark the seriousness of the Coronavirus pandemic without using any popular logos, words or references to the virus. I wanted to show the danger all around us, and our response to it.

@joshbryer Harboured Change.When the line between reality and reflection starts to blur, and a new world hangs in the balance, ready to rise up as the old world sinks. This is the change being harboured...
@amandastuartphotos During this time in isolation, I\'ve got up very early and gone to the closest beach to photograph. For the first few weeks there were black swans every morning and I loved seeing this one, gliding alone in the bay. Sadly the swans have left now.
@amandastuartphotos I saw these two leaning against their vehicles, relaxed, chatting, their feet in the same pose, and practising social distancing. A happy scene.

Conceptual photographs created in collaboration with my housemate in Sydney - Australia while in isolation.

@madelynsteinphotography I work as a dance photographer so I wanted to represent my isolation images through the perspective of a dancer. I believe this image sums up what a great deal of dancers felt once the quarantine hit.
nadene_shepherd In all the chaos of the last couple of months we can now find the calmness & reflect. \"Isolation 2020\"
The art form of photography is designed to unite people with a single image. For the first time in a century everyone is feeling very similar emotions, yet we all still have our own unique story to share. If you could choose one photo to represent your 2020, what would it be?
