It seems hard to believe, but 23rd March will mark a year – yes, a year – since the UK went into lockdown. Shops shuttered, nightclubs bordered up and the beloved pub waved a solemn goodbye to trusty punters, as the nation followed government guidelines to help stop the transmission of Covid-19.
Now in 2021, we’re… still here.
But a lot has happened over the past twelve months. In between Zoom calls, daily walks, turning back to retrieve a forgotten face mask – and a whole host of government calamities – came a resilience from the public, an admiration for the NHS, and a “new normal”. Whatever that means.
So to revisit what would once be considered an unthinkable year, we are putting together a selection of photo submissions from photographers across the country, asking for their interpretation of the above.
