A series of photographs of households on their doorsteps, recounting their experiences of lockdown, taken in my local community in North London between April-July 2020. They were shared daily on instagram @storiesbestshared
Over 100 doorways feature in the full series. If you click on an image, you can read their honest accounts – many relished the freedom from the daily grind, others longed to be back with friends in the playground or dearly missed loved ones. Overwhelmingly there is a sense of solidarity, of empathy and strength. Everyone feels and responds differently to the restrictions, but time and again we hear the phrase ‘we don’t want to go back to how we were living before”.
Thank you to everyone who took part, and everyone who’s supported this project. I’m pleased to say it’s now available as a book – thanks to the generosity of supporters who crowdfunded the initial funds to take this idea to the printers.
