First day of lockdown

24th March 2020

About this memory

This was taken on the first full day of lockdown. What remains of a poster in a phone box on Chambers St.

I'm a street photographer and my craft of course focusses on people in public spaces. The lockdown, of course, took that away- emptied the streets. For me, this photo represents those people, those subjects, disappearing as if into the ether, as we entered a strange and trepidatious new world.
