The year 2020 was dominated by COVID.  It affected the lives of everyone in the nation, either directly (if one had the disease) or through restrictions of normal activities.  This project affords glimpses of the impact of COVID, such as mask-wearing and information posters.  There are also photographs of grotesque Halloween ephemera which can be considered as metaphors for the deadly nature of the disease.  However, the main concept of the project is to use the name ”COVID” as an acronym for classification, documentation and grouping  of  the photographs taken by the photographer during 2020 – his own experience of this lost year: 

C – Creatures

O – Objects

V – Vegetation

I – Individuals 

D – Dwellings    

This group contains photographs of animals, or models of animals, ordered by insects, fish, birds, mammals.

This contains photographs of decorated, found objects, trinkets, signs and clothing.

Real and artificial flowers and plants are presented here.

Real people in human situations are mixed with photographs of models in this group.  It concludes with the
Halloween ephemera described above.

This group comprises interiors, exteriors and decorative aspects of homes and other buildings.  Landscapes are also included.

 

 

All photographs were taken digitally.
