Lockdown: 100 Days in San Francisco Facing COVID-19, Protests, and an Uncertain Future
, September 01, 2021 ) August 17, 2021 – Denver, CO and San Francisco, CA – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service
and book marketing company—is pleased to announce the release of a new photojournalism book. Conor Mitchell, a San Francisco resident, chronicles the first 100 days of San Francisco’s shelter-in-place order in his new
: 100 Days in San Francisco Facing
, Protests, and an Uncertain Future.
On March 16, 2020, San Francisco announced that it would be instituting a shelter-in-place order to help combat the spread of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It was the first major metropolitan area in California and the United States to enact such an action. Yet, throughout those first 100 days, Conor Mitchell, a photographer and videographer living in downtown San Francisco, found himself alone in the city he had called home for just 18 months. Taking as many pictures as he could, Mitchell curated a collection of photos to best illustrate what a total lockdown in one of the most famous cities in the world looked like.
But the streets would not stay quiet for long. Aside from the pandemic itself, San Francisco was one of many cities that hosted a string of protests sweeping through the country, fueled by the death of George Floyd. As a result, the city saw empty city streets fill with protestors and even scenes of civil unrest. It felt as though the entire country was beginning to pull itself apart.
The photos in Lockdown show how uncertain things were for San Francisco at the time, but they also paint a picture of how uncertain the city's future could be as well. Mitchell’s photos, accompanied by text describing each day from the author’s point of view, portray struggle and heartache, from closed storefronts, homeless encampments and medical responders responding to health emergencies.
“Wherever we may be in history relative to the pandemic and protests, I hope these photos will act as a force for change. We must take action that will result in a better future after dealing with this pandemic, a summer of revolutionary protests and what feels to be a lifetime of uncertainty,” Mitchell says.
