Window portraits during the Covid-19 pandemic 2020
May 23, 2020
The Corona virus has been an historic event in the world, but also one in our own lives. I really wanted to capture the spirit of this time and create little time-capsules for families, to remember these strange times with. So, I went out making window portraits and photographed 23 different families. It was really beautiful to take their images and read their stories. You can read some of the lockdown stories below.

Due to the Corona Virus I couldn’t do any work and taking these window portraits gave me a purpose. I raised money for the NHS and felt like I was contributing in my own little way. It gave me the opportunity to see other people and have a socially distanced chat. Making portraits got me out of the house, into unknown streets and broke my own little bubble I was living in during this time of social distancing. It was a joy to make these window portraits and I hope these pictures and the memories that belong to them will be something to cherish.
