London On Lockdown
In the Spring of 2020 under the direction of the prime minister Boris Johnson London and the UK went into lock down due to the outbreak of the Corona virus. London is one of the busiest cities in the world but became practically deserted overnight with the streets populated only by the brave key workers battling to save lives and keep us all safe. Watch our London on lock down video below.
As a photo journalist Jordan was assigned to shoot the story of the impact the coronavirus cases had on the community’s in London and the home counties. This was no easy task as social distancing rules had been put in place but Jordan felt it was a story that needed telling so agreed to undertake the commission.
It was very strange walking around London with all the pubs and restaurants shut and streets bare of human existence. Weeds even started to seep through the cracks in the concrete due to the lack of footfall from London on Lockdown.
