This photographic project started with my need to document the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic in Edinburgh. The images evoke alienation and loneliness. These high-contrasted scenes convey the sense of being trapped in a post-apocalyptic world. In addition, the project showcases the beauty in the ordinary of our daily lives and encourages us to realise how important it is to value the place we live and our connection to others.
