In a foreword for the book, along with a gorgeous snap of the Duchess with a camera in her hand, Kate wrote: “When we look back at the COVID-19 pandemic in decades to come, we will think of the challenges we all faced – the loved ones we lost, the extended isolation from our families and friends and the strain placed on our key workers.
“But we will also remember the positives: the incredible acts of kindness, the helpers and heroes who emerged from all walks of life, and how together we adapted a new normal.
“Through Hold Still, I wanted to use the power of photography to create a lasting record of what we were all experiencing – to capture individuals’ stories and document significant moments for families and communities as we lived through the pandemic.”
The campaign attracted more than 30,000 entries last year, with 100 final images later chosen to appear in a digital exhibition as well as in community exhibitions across the UK.
