2016 /2020 – Whitstable – UK
The Covid19 Collection is made up from two themes; “Then & Now” and “Lockdown”.
During the Spring 2020 Covid19 Lockdown I have been living in Whitstable; taking photographs during my local daily exercise walk with two cameras strapped over shoulders looking to capture a moment from these strange times. However, I realised that I have photographed many of these view before during more vibrant times. So I made a plan to recreate these happier shots, but now with the cloud of Social Distancing hanging over Whitstable.
The “Then & Now” collection puts these two contrasting moments in time side by side from the same scene. This project was a little more tricky than I first thought. Let along getting into the correct position from four years before, I also had to work out the tide times for the sea shots, and not forgetting having the right lens and settings on the camera to recreate the shot. A few retakes was needed for some, and a number of rejections, before arriving at the final seven photographs to be used in the collection. This Limited Editions are specially printed on Hahnemühle “Rag” Fine Art Paper, giving a beautiful depth of colour and detail.
“Then & Now” is available as Limited Edition Prints or Premium Art Prints, both print types can be purchased as framed or unframed. Photographs from the Collection are also available as Digital Images.
The “Lockdown” collection are single photographs taken while putting the “then & Now” collection together. Available as Premium Art Prints, framed or unframed, and also as Digital Images.
