In the age of Covid_19, our body temperature has assumed a new set of implications: we are all potential carriers and spreaders of the virus.

More soon!

 

London - June 26, 2020: We find ourselves unexpectedly living in an age when body temperature has assumed a new set of implications: we’re all potential carriers and spreaders of Covid-19. As part of a conceptual series of images shot on assignment, I used a thermal camera to examine what daily life currently looks like with restrictions placed on ordinary events and new routines becoming our everyday. Here, Londoners relax while social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic in Greenwich Park, south London, with the National Maritime Museum and towers of Canary Wharf on the city skyline.

London - 30th June 2020: We find ourselves unexpectedly living in an age when body temperature has assumed a new set of implications: we’re all potential carriers and spreaders of Covid-19. As part of a conceptual series of images shot on assignment, I used a thermal camera to examine what daily life currently looks like with restrictions placed on ordinary events and new routines becoming our everyday. Here, a pupil at L’Ecole de Battersea - an English-French bilingual preparatory school in South London - has their temperature checked by a member of staff as they enter the school. Since reopening at the start of June the school has been seeking solutions to lower the risk of transmission between staff and pupils and have implemented a range of measures, including installation of IQ air purifiers with HEPA filters, which remove PM2.5 particles containing bacteria and viruses. Fogging machines, which use Hypochlorous acid to decontaminate the school, are also used throughout the building. This has resulted in no reported cases of COVID-19 at the school during the pandemic so far.

As part of a conceptual series of images shot on assignment, I used a thermal camera to examine what daily life currently looks like with restrictions placed on ordinary events and new routines becoming our everyday. Here a member of staff from the Vaccine Institute, St George’s, University of London & St George’s University Hospitals NHS Trust, injects a participant with the trial COVID-19 human vaccine as part of the University of Oxford COVID-19 UK wide vaccine trial. The blue around the injection site shows the vaccine starting to disperse into the body.

London - 27th June 2020: We find ourselves unexpectedly living in an age when body temperature has assumed a new set of implications: we’re all potential carriers and spreaders of Covid-19. As part of a conceptual series of images shot on assignment, I used a thermal camera to examine what daily life currently looks like with restrictions placed on ordinary events and new routines becoming our everyday. In this image Londoners enjoy being allowed back into Jubilee Gardens on the South Bank, as lockdown is gradually eased, but social distancing remains in place.
