The photographs are very moving, and the bts photographs show how genuine the connection was between the subjects and their families and the Duchess. It's a wonderful initiative.

This is wonderful. It really shows all the time and effort that goes into their projects.

Her pictures are lovely and a great way to use her photographic skills.

This the "right stuff" that makes what the royal family does so intensive and so poignant that it can't help but reach even the coldest of hearts. As much as this is a exceptional example of Catherine's photography skills and an eye for making it meaningful, it also shows the depth of dedication and preparation and detail that went into the photograph before it was taken.

I seriously had to identify with Catherine too on the mention of the book "The Diary of Ann Frank". I read it quite a few times as a child and as a younger teen and it has made a lasting impact on me.

The photos from Catherine are incredibly well taken; she's a very versatile photographer. We normally see natural landscape photos she has taken or candid photos of the children, though she is equally talented at moving concepts such as this.

The photos are beautiful and incredibly well done but the behind the scenes shots really are just as beautiful because they show how deeply personal this really was for her. This is precisely what the world needed to see from the Royal Family right now and she absolutely could not have done it any better. I do hope we get to see much more of her photography in the coming years. It's clear that she enjoys it very much and she's very talented but the work and commitment that went into all of this really shows just how seriously she takes her role. I realize that we've seen lots of pictures of the children taken by Catherine and even some lovely pictures taken by her during their tour of the rain forest and maybe even another tour but these really took it to a whole other emotional level that not all photographers are able to grasp. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that there are various projects offered to her now that the real depth of her talent has been put on show.

Today, the Duchess of Cambridge is launching Hold Still in collaboration with her patronage, the National Portrait Gallery. To mark the launch, she gave an interview via video call which will be broadcast tomorrow, May 7, on the British daytime program This Morning.

From People
https://people.com/royals/kate-middl...irus-pandemic/
Quote:
In collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, the royal mom of three is inviting people from all over the U.K. to submit a photographic portrait that they have taken during these extraordinary times. Participants are also encouraged to provide a short written submission to outline the experiences and emotions of those depicted in their photograph.

The most poignant portraits will be selected for an exhibit called, "Hold Still," which will be shown in a virtual exhibition in early summer.

“We’ve all been struck by some of the incredible images we’ve seen which have given us an insight into the experiences and stories of people across the country,” Kate says in a statement. “Some desperately sad images showing the human tragedy of this pandemic and other uplifting pictures showing people coming together to support those more vulnerable.”

“'Hold Still' aims to capture a portrait of the nation, the spirit of the nation, what everyone is going through at this time. Photographs reflecting resilience, bravery, kindness – all those things that people are experiencing.”
The Mirror
https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-new...paign=sharebar
Quote:
The project will focus on three core themes: Helpers and Heroes; Your New Normal; and Acts of Kindness.

(...)

Kate’s choices include a heartbreaking shot of intensive care nurse Aimee Gould’s face covered in red marks from PPE after a 13-hour shift treating sick patients at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospital.

Aimee, who shared the selfie online, wrote: “This is the face going through hell. This is the face full of pressure damage from wearing PPE for almost 13 hours a day. This is the face of someone who hasn’t seen their own family for nearly a month.

“This is the face of someone who holds your dying family member’s hand, so they’re never alone.”

Another snap shows Ray and Theresa Cossey, both 81, in lockdown in Norfolk and their great-grandchildren Florence, three, and Edith, one, trying to touch them through glass.

A very pertinent project! As the patron of true NPG I think it’s fitting she got involved in creating this exhibit. These are important times which must be captured for posterity.

I agree, it really seems a great confluence of her duty as Royal Patron and her own interests as an amateur photographer.

Waoh! I imagine a huge exhibit after corona ends. I would love to see this moment of history and what other people have experienced during this crazy time.

Lovely thing for Catherine to do, especially as a patron of Evelina. They're a fantastic organisation and I speak from personal experience as I was once one of the patients there.

I can't wait to see the 100 winners' entries!!!

It will take a while and a lot of effort to narrow 31,598 to 100.
