Through the last 12 months lockdown has affected, not only the publics mental health and well-being but also the ability to access sports/ gym facilities. This series will be a reflective piece (23rd March 2020 – March 2021) that looks on the temporary closer of activity purposed spaces, making these buildings and facilities ‘redundant’. Furthermore, the series develops on a dystopian-like landscape as the structures that are photographed were once flourishing in societal means, are now deserted within a temporary basis. By losing the aptitude to access these activity-based spaces and their physical benefit toward society, they lose their intrinsic importance of delivering educational development, tackling health risks as well as inequalities and encouraging local and national community interrelations.
