A lockdown Portrait project

For many people, 2020 will be remembered for one thing. Staying at home to save lives.
Watford Museum, Watford Borough Council and JamPondPhotography created a project to capture some of the faces of the lockdown.
The idea: To photograph residents of Watford staying safe and getting through COVID-19 and to create a visual record that will become part of the town’s history.
How were photos taken?
Photographs were taken of people standing in their doorways. Volunteers were found through a couple of local Facebook groups and of course, by word of mouth.
What will happen to the results?
Participants received a digital copy of the photo(s) as a thank you for taking part. Images will form part of an exhibition later in the year and will go into an archive at the Museum, to remember what Watford at home looked like during Lockdown 2020.
How do I get involved?
Unfortunately, photoshoots finished on 14 June - but you can still see the results when they are displayed post lock down.
Any questions about Watford Out-Standing should be directed to the photographer - email Marcus@jampondphotography.com.
More photos will be added to the gallery below.
Pictures will also form the content of an exhibition/display to be organsied by Watford Borough Council later in 2020.
All images will also be added to the archives of Watford Museum.
And as a thank you, people posing for the project will also be sent digital copies of the results.
