Our Empty Theatres
Our Empty Theatres was a personal project I embarked on during lockdown last year. My main body of photography work is centred around Theatre. The shows, the rehearsal and the people. When lockdown happened I like pretty much all us freelancers found myself out of work and at a loss. My thoughts kept turning back to my workplace, our theatres, and the sad emptiness they now found themselves in. Over the course of 2 months I visited 22 theatres from London, Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds to photograph these beautiful buildings in their empty state. The series was rewarded an Honourable Mention in The Creative Review Photography Annual 2020.
