The world has been forced to adapt to a major shift in how society operates on an intimate scale; honing in on a region’s community has shown how urban, suburban and rural areas alike have adjusted to a year of dramatic change. The Post photographers have captured this change of tide that reflects how we adjust to change without warning.
