Closed in, photograph series

Closed in is a project which conveys the restrictiveness and uncertainty of the pandemic.

The series illustrates an unsettling and unpredictable environment through visual and literary components by reiterating words and phrases we associate with the pandemic. Encompassing major news headlines in a traditional and contemporary manner, in an attempt to project stages of the pandemic and echo the unease and insecurity these headlines hold. The work has been a form of protection - the gesture of hiding behind the words that we associate with the unsettling times.
