Welcome to the official page of lockdown portraits Northampton!

When I started out, I had no idea how popular my community project would become.  Whilst cycling and walking all over Northampton, I made over 200 socially distanced portraits.  The idea was not only to create a photographic record of people in our town during an unprecedented lockdown, but also to bring some light relief to fellow humans in a time of isolation and bewilderment.

The initiative was picked up by Northampton Museum and Art Gallery, who commissioned me to do a further five portraits.  These pictures were exhibited in the museum as well as in the Grosvenor Shopping Centre in 2021.  There will be a book of the best portraits at some stage, but for now, I think we are all bored of Covid and just want to live in the 'old normal' as much as we can.

Thank you to all the people who invited me into their lives.
