My project is portrait based and explores the relationship with words and images during the 2020 lockdown. The pandemic has shaped our lives in many different ways, one being our vocabulary. Many new words have been added to our day to day lives, some the same but with different meanings and some invented. They have informed us, kept us safe and given us some much needed humour. As a portrait artist, I wanted to capture the connection with some of these words and the people they related to, exploring their different emotions and situations in these unprecedented times. Documenting a time we had to change and adapt to “the new normal”.
