Zoom funerals and stolen youth, family bonds and online connections, David Munro presents stories of the varied impact of pandemic isolation—some have definitely been luckier than others.

The Covid-19 pandemic has seen emergency orders, lockdowns, and stay-at-home orders declared all across the globe.

People became trapped in their cities and inside their homes with all manner of fear and uncertainty lingering over them.

It exacerbated mental health problems and the loneliness of self-isolation for some. For others, it provided an opportunity to reconnect and strengthen relationships.

Isolation of Self, produced by David Munro, documents the experiences of individuals across Australia, New Zealand, the UK and the United States as they share stories of their times in isolation.

Adjusting to the isolation of pandemic life has evolved differently for everyone, some heavy, some light, but all unique experiences.
