"As time slowed, the bird song and figs were sweeter than ever. The garden was overturned; we sighted tuna and a barn owl. Looking in and looking out, these photographs are about a sudden plunge inwards. An awareness of our mortality - a tiny heartbeat upon a much greater geologic time scale."

A Month of Mondays
Lockdown for me meant the challenging task of developing my heavily practical university photographic classes to online, I’ve never spent so much time staring at myself, and others, in Zoom meetings or sitting still trying to focus on anything except the global pandemic, not very Sundayish! Walking every day was one of the things that brought balance to my existence and during one of these walks, where I saw more people than motor vehicles, I discovered some secret sculptures showing up in the greenbelt nearby, a new one every few days. I still don’t know who made them.

The Viral Lens.
These images were made in the first few weeks of lockdown, when I was still processing the idea that everything I touched had the potential to infect. Previously innocuous objects (an apple from the supermarket, a door handle, a weed in my garden) now seemed loaded with malicious intent.
