Here We Go Again!
A Global Photo Project Documenting Self-Isolation
In The Age Of Covid-19
Autumn 2020 Update
Back in the spring of 2020, sitting at a table looking out of the window it suddenly occurred to us that there is an opportunity to share with the Greyscape community the view from your window, your rooftop or your balcony using the hashtag #theviewfrommywindowphotoproject
Looking back to March what happened was sudden and mostly unexpected. For many of us, we find ourselves confined to our homes with or without family for we didn’t know how long.
Here we are now in November 2020 slipping into Lockdown 2.0, in the interim the magnificent emergency services, doctors, nurses, caregivers – and delivery people, cleaners, transport workers, essential services staff have continued to keep us safe.
What is clear now, in the variety of ways different governments have formulated their response as the pandemic develops, is that we have come to recognise a new way of navigating our world.
The view from my window project first time round captured what we saw in front of us. Our views, some scenic, some utterly urban, some concrete, light-limited or sun-flooded. Now we have an opportunity to share with each other what we are all simply seeing several months later, with an absence of sound. What all these pictures have is authenticity and they capture a uniquely challenging period in our lives.
Through March, April, May and June we received hundreds of wonderful photographs and collated them into a dedicated post. And now we’ll be adding the Autumn edition.
The rolling live-story on Instagram will be updated throughout the day. What is being created is an anthology of our shared experience at this highly unusual time.
