Lockdown Series: COVID-19 Church Service

Updated: Aug 23, 2021

Through my photography with the Histon Rd: A Community Remembers project I have made excellent community contacts. So when I heard St Augustine's Church in Richmond Rd was running socially distanced Sunday services, I knew exactly who to contact to see if documenting the event would be possible. The advantages of being local and a known quantity meant that the church knew that a level of trust already exisited and were welcoming. They also knew for this sort of photography, I am careful to get participant permissions especially as these photos would be going to the Cambridge University Library COVID-19 Collection.
