Knitting for the NHS

By Definition, lockdown has forced us all to look for creative inspiration closer to home.

Rather than the strange emptiness of urban spaces during lockdown, my experience has been one of calm, in the rural setting of the village I inhabit. Having the time for "daily walks" has allowed me to explore my surroundings to notice the details of a burgeoning community spirit, none more so than in the emergence of knitted rainbows and wrappings that adorn the street furniture around the village in a spirit of hope and support for the NHS. This, together with the occasional sight of and polite interaction, at a respectful distance with other walkers and cyclists has encapsulated my experience of this strange period of our existence.

My focus turned to documenting these details and the efforts of the artists and makers behind them to work on a book project to remember this period where time slowed down, in my case for the first significant stretch of time in over 30 years as a working photographer.


Here is a small selection of some of the images with a link to a larger selection at the end.

A comforting hand adds to the conversation

Shooting an annual report brief over the summer for design group Friend Studio gave me the ideal opportunity to add some new pictures to an ongoing personal project shooting quiet moments in the busy world of retail.

The shoot for Eurocommercial Properties gave me the chance to visit a range of shopping centres in Belgium, France and Italy where a comforting hand and some furtive glances from the inhabitants of shop windows enabled me to continue the conversation to determine who's looking at who.
