The Picturing Lockdown Collection was created during April and May 2020, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. During seven days the public were asked to submit photographs that they felt best represented their experiences of lockdown in England, and from these submissions one hundred representing all the different geographic regions were chosen to be archived with Historic England. Alongside these images, ten artists were commissioned to produce their own images over the course of five days, representing their lockdown experience. These were supplemented with images by Historic England’s own photographers. Together, the Picturing Lockdown collection forms a permanent visual record of this unusual time in history.

This photograph is one of the one hundred images taken by the public, and was chosen to represent the East Midlands region. It was taken at 12.30 on 3rd May 2020. The photographer wrote the following text to explain how the image documents their experience of lockdown: "All the photographs I'm doing are within a few miles of my home on my way to either a shop or on an exercise walk. My friend is in week 8 of lockdown and can't leave her home."
