It is challenging to grasp the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rotating between the bed, sofa and kitchen, there is a certain kind of silence that hangs in the air, filling it with tension. Living in a small flatshare I have become hyper-aware of the mirrors around me and my body’s imperfections. This photo series explores themes of depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. By using household bleach on photographic prints, I watched my current situation fade into something different, something harsh, angry, and sad. All feelings I have had during the quarantine. The images are a reaction to the emotions I have felt over the course of lockdown in London, negative and somber feelings that surround everything I do.
