As part of #CultureIsNotCancelled – our campaign championing culture in the age of social distancing – we have invited photographers to send us an image each week for a project titled The Self-Isolation Photographic Diaries, providing a unique and creative documentation of life under lockdown.

“One form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk or cycle – alone or with members of your household.”

Paul Phung

“‘A phosphorescent jewel gives off its glow and colour in the dark and loses its beauty in the light of day. Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty.’ A quote from the book In Praise of Shadows by Junichiro Tanizaki.”

Eddie Whelan

“Waving to the neighbours.”

Lorena Lohr

“On a Greyhound bus ten years ago, I was in the Arizona desert at 5am. Pink light fading to pale blue haze, and space all round. For some reason I decided that evening to make a painting of a nude woman lying down in the desert, like a medieval or devotional scene painted in the American Southwest. It took me a long time to teach myself how to paint to some semblance of that. My photos rely on being outside, being in the spaces that other people have created, so rather than take photos at this time, I have been working on a series of paintings every day. Here’s one of them.”
