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 21.17 on 4th May 2020, is the fourth 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: "The Everyman cinema in Bristol has been closed for over 6 weeks. Their staff left these messages of support in place of upcoming films. Sometimes the concept of community can be difficult to grasp, but in our current climate the smallest gestures can make others feel less alone."
