Children of covid
Life’s usual challenges pale in comparison to the extreme sense of isolation and detachment that has consumed us during the covid-19 pandemic. A complex series of what felt like never-ending periods of time. Children stowed away from interaction with their peers and friends as we tried to protect them from the deadly airborne disease. Made during the Coronavirus lockdown of November and December 2020. Recording the emotional effect that isolation on primary school age children in my local village. My project looks into the face of confinement and the effects it had on a cross section of children aged between 5 and 10. Our children left feeling frustrated and detached but in some cases liberated.
