Pandemic Seaside – A Coronavirus photography project

Coronavirus Photography

On 23rd March 2020 the U.K went in to official lockdown to help stop the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. With this I started to witness familiar places and local landmarks change before my eyes. Very quickly there was a ghostly feel around my home town and I embarked on a coronavirus photography project.

To help me through the lockdown I would look to photograph the changing world around me. The U.K government permitted daily exercise to which I’d undertake along with my camera and a 50mm lens. Deciding to shoot similar to my 50mm photography project.

When walking the familiar streets and beside the seaside things felt extremely quiet and empty. Everyday started to feel a repeat of the day before and I was plagued by the constant use of media buzzwords. Lockdown, pandemic, slow the spread, self isolating and social distancing.
For this coronavirus photography project I decided to reshape the areas with the terms I had been hearing day in day out.

BBC Radio Suffolk and I spoke about this project which can be listened to here.
