A couple of months ago, when I first started documenting the experience of lockdown, I didn’t have a strict criteria in mind. It was simply a case of heading out for my daily hit of state-sanctioned exercise, camera in hand, and shooting what I saw.
But, as time went on, I began to notice new things about how my hometown of Bristol was coping with the new normal.
Instead of the classic scenes of face masks, supermarket queues and eerily vacant city centres, I was drawn to some of lockdown’s more unusual moments.
I started to notice more and more unusual little moments such as a couple playing badminton from a front garden to a locked-down upstairs flat, a man exercising his chicken in the street, children reclaiming the roads as safe play area
In some ways, the project began to document how individuals were responding to the crisis, perhaps in a very quirky, British way.
