Since the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Dougie Wallace has been out photographing on the streets of London, capturing the changing moods of the city and its population. Through his distinct and direct style of expressive social documentary photography, he depicts how the nation’s capital has been crippled by the pandemic. London’s iconic red buses feature significantly, uncovering both the social consequences of Covid and the measures taken to contain it. People adapted to wearing protective gear, there were adverts for events that would never happen and the urban landscape changed to accommodate warnings to encourage shifts in public behaviour. Wallace’s images capture ordinary folk going about their lives in the most peculiar of circumstances. It is a testament to these strange and turbulent times.
