When the country began social distancing and then lockdown, photographer Tom Skipp was due to visit his mother, who lives in a care home about four hours' drive from him, for Mother's Day. No longer able to travel, instead of making the trip on that Sunday, he photographed the many rainbows that had sprung up in and around Bristol.
"In the following week, news of the situation in care homes became darker and darker," Skipp says.
"The rainbows stand for something so hopeful and positive.
"The support for the NHS will not be lost on my mum, after she spent 40 years in their service.
"I wanted to recognise and credit the creators of the rainbows and spread the hope they'd given me to more people.
"As I worked on the project, many of the kids told me that they were making Lego that day, exactly what I used to do with my mum."
Here are a selection of pictures from the project, which Skipp has dedicated to his mother, Kate.
