A series of images made while living through a global pandemic.
The following gallery was made within 5 miles of my home in East Sussex between 26th March and 10 May 2020 on the daily hour of exercise that the population were allowed to participate in (as long as the activity was alone or with a member of your household). This period of time saw the United Kingdom fully 'locked down' and in a state of social isolation as a result of the exponential spread of Covid-19.
The first few days felt like I was tresspassing on the land of others, sneaking around guiltily weilding a 'non-essential' camera. As the terms and conditions of solitude began to assimilate, I relaxed and began to relish the silence. As rabbits became my new friends, I secretly wished it could stay like this forever...
'But if you could just see the beauty,
These things I could never describe,
These pleasures a wayward distraction,
This is my one lucky prize'
[Joy Division, 'Isolation', 1980]
