#artistsupportpledge



The evening the lockdown was announced, I was cycling through an already deserted London astonished to experience the city like I had never seen it in the 20 years I have been living here. I decided that taking the camera on my nightly cycling excursions – my chosen form of daily exercise – was a safe way to document our city without endangering myself or others. Like many others I felt compelled to document the lack of crowds in usually crowded locations. But looking at the images I have made over these last weeks, I feel these photos are less about the lack of human presence and rather about the stillness of a city that’s being allowed a breather to reveal a beauty that normally goes unnoticed. I'm offering archival-quality prints from this series for £45 for a limited time as part of the #artistsupportpledge initiative to support myself and other artists during the Covid-19 crisis.
