Coronavirus: 24 hours on lockdown 

  • Published

Seventeen years ago, a group of 24 photographers set out to document every hour of New Year's Day, every year, for 24 years. But during these unprecedented times, members of the collective have come together again, this time turning their attention and lenses to the Covid-19 pandemic, to document 24 hours on lockdown.

Each of the 24 photographers was allocated one hour, starting at midnight on 24 March, to document what it means to be on lockdown, creating a unique collection of images linked not only by time but by a global pandemic.

The project is continuing, and each week, while lockdown lasts, the photographers will continue to document their experiences.
