While most of the newsroom is able to work from home, news photographers and videographers cannot. 

They are working on the front lines of the biggest story in our generation. They are navigating uncharted territory — having to protect themselves and others while still capturing photos and videos.

As part of our Life of an Essential Worker series, MPR News host Angela Davis chats with MPR News photojournalist Evan Frost about how his job has changed.
