Picture life under lockdown.

 Bath Preservation Trust want your help to set up a pictorial record of lockdown life in the city.

A project has been launched, in which people are being asked to submit photos that document their experiences of how the three periods of lockdown affected the streets and landscape in and around Bath.

Bath Preservation Trust (BPT) is inviting local residents to submit their images of the city, taken during one of the most extraordinary times in the city’s 2,000-year history. 

Whether they are of empty pavements, pictures of rainbows in front windows, signs reminding people to wash their hands or maintain social distancing, car-free roads or socially distanced gatherings in public spaces, we’d love to receive photos that reflect the way in which our World Heritage City’s appearance changed during the past year,” says Bath Preservation Trust’s Chief Executive Caroline Kay.

“These images will form an important historical record of lockdown life in the city, creating an accessible archive that will help to show future generations what the city was like in this historic time.”

From smart phone snaps to shots taken with a professional camera, individual images or an entire collection, if you would like to contribute to the project – with or without copyright – please send your photographs to jrobinson@bptrust.org.uk

Selected images will be shared across BPT’s social media platforms with credit, and may also form part of future exhibitions. Images will be stored in the BPT archive, which is accessible to the public by appointment.
