Living In Lockdown

In 2020 we all found ourselves in a global pandemic as the result of the COVID-19 virus. I wanted to capture & document these unusual times in my own photographic style. So I decided to create this photo-documentary project: #LivingInLockdown.

#LivingInLockdown is a small glimpse into life during the COVID pandemic. It is completely from my own view point & how I have seen the world around me. Throughout my #LivingInLockdown project I have followed our Governments COVID Guidelines to keep myself & others safe. All photos & views are my own.

On the 23rd March 2020 the UK Government placed the UK in to a state of national lockdown due to the emerging COVID-19 pandemic. This was to be the first of many national & local COVID-19 lockdowns in the UK. The UK Government ordered Non-essential shops, pubs and restaurants to close and the people of the UK to STAY AT HOME with the exception of essential travel (work, essential shopping, & daily exercise). Which left our streets baron and our towns & cities like ghost towns.

Along with other countries all around the world we found ourselves in unprecedented times of social distancing & social isolation in order to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The COVID-19 pandemic has touched everyone’s lives in so many ways & the story is clearly far from over as we find ourselves with yet more national lockdowns & restrictions
