Potterne, a Village in Lockdown - April, May, June 2020
a work in progress
As a photographer I felt it right to record, through imagery, the way this Wiltshire village has coped with the current pandemic and what effect it has had on us all. I’ve been bowled over by the resilience, kindness, selflessness and generosity that the majority of villagers have displayed. I am trying to photograph a cross-section of the community from the young to the elderly, those living on their own to large families. This is a sample of the work so far. With each photograph is a quote from each participant, relevant to their experience of this period.
I am still looking for people who are be willing to be photographed. It takes no more than 30 minutes and I keep to all the regulations around social distancing. If you live in Potterne and are willing to take part please contact me on 07904 965232 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
