Description

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, taken at 23.58 on 2nd May 2020, is the third of five images depicting the lockdown as experienced by the artist Malaika Kegode, and represents the South West region. The artist has written the following text to explain how this image documents their experience of lockdown: "Usually at this time on a Saturday night the local pubs would be calling last orders at the bar. Instead, it is eerily silent and still. The Clyde on Hampton Road is always full of revellers, it’s a Redland institution and whilst they are temporarily closed, they’re still reaching out to their community."
