Covid-19 has put nurses through hell. In honour of their sacrifice, the Monaco Red Cross and the National Association of Monaco Nurses commissioned a photo essay to bear witness to their work, as well as that of other Monegasque institutions involved in the fight against the virus.

From young volunteers to medical professionals, people from all walks of life have done their best to help Monaco during the pandemic. To honour their commitment, the Monaco Red Cross commissioned Nick Danziger to capture these everyday heroes. the result is a photo essay that displays a profound sense of hope and humanity.

A photo essay by Nick Danziger

Danzinger is a photographer, filmmaker, travel writer, and journalist. When he takes pictures, there is one rule he always follows: in order to preserve a sense of spontaneity, he never stops to look at the pictures he’s just shot on the display.

Even if fear and anxiety are often present when they’re confronted with the danger posed by coronavirus, all these workers, volunteers and employees show exemplary courage and dedication.

Our work is different from other countries: we are particularly close to the population, to help them, to protect them, to work for the common good.
