Lost Society: Looking In from the Outside

  • Photographer
    Mieke Douglas

Peering into dark, empty spaces. Camera pressed up to smeared, steamy glass. Glimpses of shiny Christmas decorations; cleaning products and hand sanitisers; abandoned drinks. Each one unique.

Looking in as an observer, no longer a participant. Imagining the fun and the life and the noise. Struggling businesses forced to close yet again to halt the pandemic, left deserted. Silent. Dark.

Our lives from before, becoming ever more distant. Evocative and otherworldly.Unimaginable. Fading.Grasping at fragments. Photographing to record this collective pause. To try to remember.
