Galina Akselrod-Golikova, 23, poses for a photograph by the gates to the courtyard of her apartment block in Moscow, Russia, December 14, 2020. In early 2020, Akselrod-Golikova was preparing to travel from Moscow to Italy for a marketing and PR job at the Venice biennale's Russian pavilion. She couldn't wait to start. The dream never happened: the whole event was postponed, the job disappeared and, instead of travelling abroad, she ended up isolated from her friends and family in an apartment in Moscow as a tough lockdown suddenly began in April. The shock upset her deeply. She fretted so much that she developed stress-induced health issues. In time though, she said she was relieved to have a chance to refocus her life and have time to think. She said she slowed down for the first time and put her energy into decorating the apartment where she lives with her boyfriend with stylish ornaments, antique furniture and flower arrangements. "This year was the first time I started to devote so much time to my home, to buying some little things, and to stay there and to think about my space and to express myself through it," she said. She has not rushed to get a new job, and with time to reflect she has realised that she wants to enrol for a masters degree in food studies in Rome next year. Despite the upheaval, Akselrod-Golikova believes that the pandemic has brought many positive things into her life, though she acknowledges it was easier for younger people to adjust quickly. "I've started to appreciate my time as a resource and to devote it to my family, to my friends and to spend more time with them, including getting to know my parents and friends in new ways," she said.

Abdullah El-Berry, 22, a trainee sports journalist, poses for a photograph on a street in Cairo, Egypt, December 20, 2020. Berry entered 2020 thinking life would be tough. A severe knee injury needed daily physiotherapy and seriously affected his three-hour commute to Cairo from his home in the Delta city of Shebine al-Qanatir. After the pandemic hit, he could not continue physiotherapy as Egypt's hospitals were overrun with patients. He could not present his graduation project or attend his long-awaited graduation ceremony. The suspension of sports made it near impossible to do his job. And his daily commute was thrown in disarray by night curfews. Now, he believes 2021 will be even tougher. Paid very little as a trainee at a state-owned newspaper, the young graduate worries he will struggle to find a proper job. "We already suffer to find a job," he said. "Now, many people lost their jobs due to coronavirus and the economic crisis. It will definitely impact us all." Berry believes social distancing and wearing masks will continue to control lives in 2021, and make young people of his generation less likely to travel and explore new opportunities. His wishlist for 2021 includes advancing his career and resuming work on a YouTube channel he abandoned due to his studies and coronavirus.

The Wider Image: Before and After: life is slowly reemerging in Wuhan
Tentative signs of normal life are returning to Wuhan, the Chinese city where the coronavirus epidemic was first documented, after a 76-day lockdown that turned it into a virtual ghost town. Authorities in the city of 11 million on Wednesday lifted the draconian curbs they put in place in January, allowing residents to leave the city by car, rail and plane, taxis to resume operations and more non-essential businesses to re-open. Shoppers on Thursday streamed into Wuhan's main shopping belt, Chu River and Han Street, where international brands including Nike and Lego have stores and which was virtually deserted last month as the shops were shut. People also took advantage of warm weather to head to the banks of the freshwater East Lake, filling up its parking lots, while cars returned to the road leading to Wuhan's reopened Hankou Railway station. But traffic levels remained far below the close-to-gridlock levels that used to plague the city, as national government recommendations that people to refrain from going out unnecessarily remain in place. During the lockdown, public transport was shut down, roads were blocked and people ordered to stay at home to stay home to try and stem the spread of the coronavirus. Even so, more than 50,000 people became infected in Wuhan, and more than 2,500 of them died, about 80% of all fatalities in China, according to official figures. The tough restrictions are credited with helping to bring about a sharp drop in the numbers of locally transmitted cases in Wuhan and China at a time when the virus has evolved into a global pandemic.

Venezuelan migrant Teresa Amaro, 83, from Barquisimeto, poses for a picture with her daughter Maite Perez, 43, and her grandson Edwar Coste, 7, while they rest at the Ecuadorian-Peruvian border service centre before they continue their journey into Peru, on the outskirts of Tumbes, Peru, June 15, 2019. Amaro, who had previously suffered a heart attack, said: "It is tough to find medicines, and when you find them they are very expensive, and there is not enough money to buy them. We didn't have electricity. We didn't have cooking gas and we were cooking with firewood. By the time we left, we already had a month without gas in the whole area, and we couldn't find firewood either. I did not want to come, but they told me: 'Mama, we're not going to leave you alone.'"

The Wider Image: Venezuelan mothers, children in tow, rush to migrate
Venezuelan migrant Ailin Tua, 43, poses for a picture with her daughters Paola, 18, and Sofia, 13, as they wait for a taxi to continue their journey, after they processed their documents at the Ecuadorian-Peruvian border service centre, on the outskirts of Tumbes, Peru, June 17, 2019. Tua is a seamstress who had her own workshop, until lack of customers and the high price of raw materials forced her to close. She said that her husband was a truck driver and had a good income. "He killed himself for more than 28 years... on Venezuela's highways, thank God, who took care of him for such long time while working to support us and support his family," but when "the owner of the company where he worked migrated to the United States the business closed." In 2017 her husband left the country, first to Ecuador and then to Peru, but it was not until six months later that he managed to get a stable job and was able to send money back to Venezuela. These were tough months for her husband. "He slept on the street for almost four months," she said. The final trigger take the family out of Venezuela was a kidnap threat, "I received a call and they said: 'Ahilin, I want $350 right now or I'll go to kidnap Paola and Sofia, I will go to their schools.'" "I stopped a taxi, and I went to their schools to pick them up quickly, then we went home, and packed what we could carry in two black trash bags... and ran to my sisters' house." Tua left her daughters living with her sister in another town and migrated to try and establish a new home, before going back to Venezuela to collect her daughters.
