Centered on the spectacular Masjid al-Haram, this image shows the continued impact of COVID-19 on our lives and the new patterns of life that have emerged.At the heart of the Masjid al-Haram is the Kaa’ba. Typically the outdoor space surrounding the Kaa’ba is packed with pilgrims. However, this image instead shows the well-spaced pattern of prayer rugs and an otherwise empty floor, exemplars of the social distancing measures necessary to keep pilgrims to the Kaa’ba safe.
