This is an ongoing project started within the confinements of my home in Manchester. 

 

Using CCTV cameras i explore how places have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and government regulations to self isolate. For the purpose of this series, I specifically focused on Italy, the country that has been worst affected by the virus. I have been exploring other countries, cities and countrysides as well as accessing airport cameras which i will be posting daily on my instagram.

 

We are all facing such uncertain times, I obsessively check the growing daily death rates every day so the only way I can take my mind off my own anxieties is is to keep busy and meander the streets of different countries that are otherwise inaccessible. Some places i revisit everyday. I observe passers by and wonder what they are doing and where they are going. I sometimes make notes about my observations so i can look back on them and reference my days indoors.

 

They are all screenshots from real time cameras so it is nice to still have a physical connection with image making.
