This project is a collection of images captured from publicly accessible surveillance cameras from around the UK and gives an insight into the impact of the Covid-19 lockdown on everyday life in the UK.

Frustrated by the restrictions of movement during the crisis, the challenge became… How could I explore alternative ways of photographically documenting the day to day affect of the virus without leaving the house? By utilising publicly available surveillance imagery from the internet, it was possible to record the visual impact of the lockdown around the country. Many of the screen captures are from webcams promoting tourist locations, landmarks, businesses and peoples homes, others are sourced from live streaming events.
