24 photographers capture a city gripped by Covid.
2020 brought a seismic break with normality. For those living in urban centres, lockdown made us wonder if city life as we knew it was gone forever. The images in this book express the anxiety, the love, the boredom, the tranquillity and the reconnection with nature that isolation brought. Uncanny but often uplifting, they show London at a defining moment in its history – telling a story that will resonate far beyond the pandemic.
Published in association with the Museum of London, whose collection of over 180,000 comprise a visual encyclopaedia of London’s history.
