As part of our #CultureIsNotCancelled campaign – which aims to champion creativity in the age of social distancing – we have launched a new series called The Self-Isolation Photographic Diaries, inviting a selection of photographers to send us an image each week, creating a unique documentation of life in lockdown.

“We think we own whatever land we land on
The Earth is just a dead thing we can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name.”

– Pocahontas, 1995

Alexandra Leese

“My place.”

Kuba Ryniewicz

“As there’s less potential to move around these days, memory becomes more of an object in the room. For some reason, I keep on remembering an Elvis impersonator singing Are You Lonesome Tonight in a barnhouse restaurant next to a Days Inn motel in Memphis. Here is the real Elvis’s bed, being kept clean under a layer of wipe-down plastic sheeting.”

Eddie Whelan

“Going into town.”

Paul Phung

“Flowers I found on my daily walk.”
