Nicky Ebbage is part of the ongoing Bristol24/7 Creative Lockdown series, showcasing how people in Bristol have been getting arty under lockdown.
Nicky Ebbage, a photographer working across Bristol, has started a new creative project during the lockdown.
Through Your Window documents the coronavirus pandemic through photos and written stories.
Lots of people have been getting in touch with Nicky and telling them their story, and Nicky has then – safely – been taking photos of each person in their window.
“When I stood at my window the other night and clapped for the NHS with the rest of my street, I felt such a strong sense of community and solidarity,” says Nicky. “It was a real morale boost, and it inspired me to think about other ways to bring people together.”
This project was the result.
Nicky takes the photos during their daily exercise walk, stopping for a few moments to take a photo of the individual from outside, such as the doorway, your window, or anywhere else around the home which complies with distancing rules.
Nicky is showcasing their work through Instagram, Facebook and on their website.
“I really hope that sharing stories in this way can help bring about a sense of community,” Nicky says. “But if not, perhaps it might just bring someone a smile.”
