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 14.08 on 29th April 2020, is the first of five images depicting the lockdown as experienced by the artist Coralie Datta, and represents the Yorkshire region. The artist has written the following text to explain how this image documents their experience of lockdown: "This photograph depicts Ekaterina on a bike ride for her daily exercise. During the lock down there has been a rise in the amount of cyclist on the streets as there are fewer cars."
