Closed by Covid (2020)

In March 2020 England was threatened by the SARS-2 Coronavirus. The government decreed that we should go into lockdown. Shops were forbidden to open and other public facilites were closed. People were encouraged to stay at home, working from home if possible. Over 70 year olds were asked to only go out if absolutely necessary.

Exercise was permitted, and while walking around the village in the early hours I became aware of the variety of closure notices. Photographing them became a 'project'. As the Lockdown began to ease some 4 months later, and business opened up, the project came to a close.

I decided to present a selection of the pictures I took as video slideshow.
