All In This Together
All In this Together" is an ongoing series that considers the isolation caused by the Covid 19 crisis. At the beginning of the pandemic when we were clapping for nurses and being encouraged to "save the NHS", feelings of community and nostalgic sentiments of rallying together seemed to be at the forefront of the collective conscience.
In the early days of the pandemic I watched some friends businesses vanish overnight whilst others thrived. I quickly became aware that while this was indeed affecting us all, those effects were varied and often peoples' experiences were vastly different. While lockdown for some was a time to reconnect, time to create, time to reinvent or just more ‘time' for others it meant isolation, absence, loneliness and growing financial pressure. Living on the edge of a city like London I look out at millions of illuminated windows and think of all those individuals facing their own battles, fears and struggles as we all faced the pandemic together in isolation.
All the isolated people silhouettes featured in these shots are fictional and were taken from previous images of mine or shot remotly by friends and family.
