This project combines an image taken daily during the Covid-19 crisis - either at our home 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 few images show a brief chronology leading into Lockdown. First daily photograph is from Monday, March 16th when the UK imposed social distancing rules. Lockdown happened a week later. There are 120 daily photographs, ending July 13th. Every morning major newspaper and TV headlines were scanned, to choose those most representative and repeated across outlets. Headlines now tend to be more politicised and disparate than at the beginning.

The recurrent landscape photograph is a view from the studio, taken at roughly the same time each day (with morning coffee). Other images are from daily walks in the neighbourhood.

The light and the weather tell part of the story, as rephotography reflecting the routine of home-lockdown.
