Coronavirus UK First Edition -3


The project combines an image taken daily during the Covid-19 crisis - either at home from the studio or during some personal activity locally - with a news headline from that same morning. There is discordancy and often paradox between the headline and the photograph.

The first daily photograph is from Monday, March 16th when the UK imposed social distancing rules. Lockdown happened a week later. There are 120 photographs, ending July 13th. Every morning major newspaper and TV headlines were scanned, to choose those most representative. The light and the weather tell part of the story, as rephotography reflecting the routine of home-lockdown.

All of the photographs in the series are here.

The softcover book has a high-quality colour photograph per page for the 120 days. There is also a brief chronology leading to the Lockdown, and a reference list of all news headlines. Total 138 pages.

The book is a signed special edition, limited to 50 copies.
