Glasgow in Lockdown Project
This photography project is inspired by daily exercise walks on the streets of Glasgow during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With this project I aim to create a record of urban life in Glasgow under lockdown as experienced during our neigbourhood walks with the camera in hand.
We live in strange and precarious times – under a threat of a life-threatening infection, with a distinct urban aesthetic on the rise, new social habits and strong undercurrents of political unrest – that deserve to documented (or interpreted) photographically.
Sometimes unintentionally, sometimes prompted by John, I’ve captured the solitude of the streets, facial mask diversity, the evolution of billboard poster messages and new graffiti art, takeaway pints and thriving food delivery couriers, social distancing measures and shop signs, tributes to the NHS, lying politicians and the BLM protest movement, monuments vandalised and much more.
Trying to catch up with editing (duh…) and writing…
