Social Distancing Project in The Argus

The Argus today ran a two-page special featuring my photographs from St Patrick’s Day (Tuesday 17th March), showing the effects of the government’s initial recommendation that the public stay home.

My photographs from St Patrick’s Day (Tuesday 17th March) were printed in The Argus today. The photos in the two-page spread show empty pubs, restaurants and takeaways, showing the effects of the government’s initial recommendation that the public stay home. This was almost a week before today’s full lockdown announcement.

I also made a point of mentioning the lack of support for the people affected by the closures. Many people working in leisure are freelancers and workers on zero-hour contracts. As of today there has still been no support offered to these workers, although there are rumblings that a package of support for self-employed people will emerge later this week.
