Lockdown made me feel very disconnected from my normal life. I am used to exploring new places and constantly being outside, and this is what I wanted to portray through my imagery. The camera being set up in the same location for all fifteen photographs represents being in the same environment continually throughout lockdown, myself in each image. You will notice I am in a different part of the landscape in each image, illustrating the isolation and feeling of being trapped, even though all of this nature is sitting right in front of me ready to explore. Moreover I also wanted to show the vulnerability of not just me but the world, the idea that the coronavirus is invisible and we can’t see it. Making myself small compared to the rest of the composition highlights this fact and also depicts an uneasiness about unknown locations that have the possibility to make you ill.
