In this special episode of the Podcast, Tanya Nagar returns to launch a special project with me and first-time guest Tom Clabots, a photographer based in Antwerp, Belgium.
The three of us have spent some of our isolation establishing @covidstreet, a place where we can come together and document the developing crisis around the world, while staying within the rules, and with the ultimate goal of producing a book that we can sell to raise money to help in the aftermath.
If that sounds a big ask, well, you can read more about the plan or, of course, listen to the podcast.
The beginning of the Covid Street idea, and why we chose Instagram to get started
A bit about our early experience
We finally explain the entire plan.
How you can not only follow but become a part of @covidstreet.
Just some examples of how bad things could have got if we’d recorded for longer!
Some of the images we talk about
Some examples on the feed…
As well as the three of us, capturing Covid from Croydon, Leyton & Antwerp, we have been joined by a number of other photographers, who’s work you’ll find when you start to explore the Instagram feed, and our Stories.
Plus, if you’ve seen something we haven’t, and want to join in, have a listen, see if you like us, and (I’m sure you will), go ahead and get in touch, or just share by tagging us on your posting and we’ll call you!
