POSTPONED VIDEO/PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECT CALLOUT
I am working on a project entitled Postponed. POSTPONED will capture the mood of post-lockdown England in a series of short video portraits featuring a range of individuals and communities who have had their big event or gathering postponed or cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic. These short (approx 30 second) videos, looped into a 15 minute sequence, will document, through group images, a range of individuals of differing passions and professions - from pantomime actors to ballroom dancers to bingo enthusiasts to devotees of music festivals to football fans to nightclubbers to historical re-enactment societies and street festival celebrants - filmed in the location where their event didn't happen. This collection of group portraits will be exhibited online through the Coastal Currents festival website during March 2021 I feel this is a work that needs to be made while a sense of loss is still keenly felt by those who would otherwise have been pursuing their passions and pastimes. POSTPONED - as a sequence of documentary portraits - will stand as a lasting digital testimony to the diversity of lives disrupted by the year of lockdown.
