Extreme pain, but also extreme joy - Peace image of the year 2021
Lockdown in Los Angeles in spring 2020. The hospitals are flooded with covid patients. In the maternity wards spouses are not allowed. Many women want to give birth at home. They are afraid of the hospitals. They are in panic. In this situation Margaret Shannon decides to accompany four midwives. A father kissing his new-born, almost as if lost in prayer. It is a picture of a deep peace in a time of thousands of unpeaceful events.

كانت تمرّ لوس أنجلوس بفترة من الإقفال التام في ربيع العام 2020، وكانت المستشفيات تغصّ بمرضى كورونا ولا يُسمح بدخول الأزواج إلى قسم الولادة. لهذا السبب، قرّرت العديد من النساء أن يولدنَ أطفالهنّ في المنزل. كان الخوف من المستشفيات شاملاً، والجميع في حالة هلع. وفي خضمّ هذا الوضع، قرّرت شانون مرافقة أربع قابلات في زياراتهنّ المنزليّة للنساء الحوامل. وتظهر الصورة أباً يقبّل طفله حديث الولادة بشغف كبيرٍ في تجسيد للمعنى الحقيقي للسلام خلال فترة تزخر بآلاف الأحداث الأليمة.
