Living through the Covid Pandemic is the biggest challenge faced by the people of St Albans for over seventy years.

As a photographer living in St Albans, I am working with St Albans Museums and the Herts Advertiser to record the way in which we are surviving the Pandemic.  I am doing that by making portraits of people, mainly in the Market Place, but also elsewhere in town, as they go about their daily lives, shopping, working etc.  I am taking photographs of people both wearing and not wearing their Covid-safety masks.  I am also asking everyone photographed to say a few words about the Pandemic and how it has affected them.  I am producing the portraits as digital diptychs - portraits of each person with and without a mask, side by side, with a short caption beneath.  The portraits will reflect the diversity of St Albans.
