Since the beginning of the pandemic I have spent significant time in many of London's boroughs photographing how it has felt to live in one of the most famous cities in the world during a global pandemic. This photo was taken in Kentish Town, London on 19 May 2020. I noticed the space helmet while riding past on my bike. The space helmet looking out onto the street felt very surreal and made me think how not too long ago space exploration was unimaginable. That feeling seemed appropriate for what was happening in the world, and how no one could have imagined we would be hit by a deadly pandemic and all of London and the world would shut down. Two years on and the extent and impact of the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic is still very surreal. The space helmet and face mask are both hugely symbolic of moments in history.
