2-879-509 - Historic England Archive/Heritage Images

Washing in a washing machine during the Covid-19 lockdown, with two gel balls which the photographer felt bore a disturbing resemblance to coronavirus particles. The Picturing Lockdown Collection was created during April and May 2020, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. During seven days the public were asked to submit photographs that they felt best represented their experiences of lockdown in England, and from these submissions one hundred representing all the different geographic regions were chosen to be archived with Historic England. Alongside these images, ten artists were commissioned to produce their own images over the course of five days, representing their lockdown experience. These were supplemented with images by Historic England’s own photographers. Together, the Picturing Lockdown collection forms a permanent visual record of this unusual time in history. This photograph is one of fifty taken by Historic England's staff photographers. It was taken at 19.41 on 4th May 2020.
