Kate Middleton is channeling her love of photography for a new community project.
The Duchess of Cambridge just launched Hold Still, a photography initiative aiming to reflect the feelings of everyone across the United Kingdom amid the current coronavirus pandemic.
The 38-year-old, in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, is asking followers to “help capture the spirit, the mood, the hopes, the fears and the feelings of the U.K,” using phones or cameras and sharing the images online. Kensington Palace announced the new program in an Instagram post.
“Completely free and open to all ages and abilities, Hold Still will capture a snapshot of the U.K. at this time, creating a collective portrait of lockdown which will reflect resilience and bravery, humor and sadness, creativity and kindness, and human tragedy and hope,” part of the caption read. “One hundred shortlisted portraits will feature in a gallery without walls—a one of a kind digital exhibition open to all this August.” Wow.
