Living through the Covid Pandemic is the biggest challenge faced by the people of St Albans for over seventy years. The Pandemic is also history in the making.
As a photographer living in St Albans, I am working with St Albans Museums, local community groups and businesses 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 reflect the diversity of St Albans.
