Protesting in a Pandemic

The brutal killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer has triggered a global constellation of protests under the banner of Black Lives Matter. Against the backdrop of national lockdowns due to the spread of COVID-19, debates concerning the respective priorities of social-distancing and the right to protest persist. In light of the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on people of colour, and pent-up energy after weeks in isolation, the protests have been imbued with a singular intensity. Whether taking to the street, or showing solidarity from a window or balcony, this photo series charts the unique intersection of pandemic and protest - how the visual and textual motifs of COVID-19 have been inscribed on the Black Lives Matter movement in London.

Originally from New Zealand, I developed a passion for photography during a year-long trip to South America. Since then, I relocated to London and undertook a masters degree in philosophy (another passion) and now work full-time as a travel photographer. With travel currently hindered due to COVID-19, I have turned my lens to documenting the social impact of the pandemic and recent Black Lives Matter protests.
