A Peaceful Moment
8 x 10 in.

For many families, grandparents play vital roles in the lives of their grandchildren. Millions of children are living with or being raised by grandparents. During the Covid-19 pandemic, as home turns into school and daycare, many grandparents find themselves doubling up as childcare provider and teacher. Even under the stress of being more susceptible to the virus, grandparents continue to meet critical needs.

Many homes are bursting at the seams, stretched by unexpected challenges in almost every corner of life. Overnight homes became work places, schools and isolation zones. Keeping in mind that not every home is a sanctuary, especially in times of upheaval, many people seek solace outside. “A Peaceful Moment” documents a child’s much needed break from the crowded chaos.
