The Still Life:
A Quarantine Diary
In the early stages of the COVID-19 outbreak I created a durational series of still life compositions. A photo-diary of my life in lockdown. Each day, I photographed different objects related to the domestic activities that came to define my indoor existence. These objects characterised my daily rhythms and routines which had taken on a new kind of reverence in the context of the pandemic. Sharing each new day’s photo on Instagram was a way of staying socially connected to other humans in a physically distanced world. It became a common point of reference and a mode of communication.
