In October, my partner and I flew back to England. We quarantined for a total of 28 days—14 in Devon, 14 in Vancouver. From the moment we landed in London, I couldn't help but compare how London and Vancouver were dealing with COVID-19 so differently. It felt clear to me why coronavirus numbers in England were spiralling out of control. Crowded pubs, lax attitudes and political distrust have no doubt affected the spread of COVID in England. Meanwhile in British Columbia, numbers rose from behind closed doors, after an influx of private gatherings in celebration of Thanksgiving.
As a photojournalist, quarantine was an opportunity to—for once—look inward rather than out, and to spend purposeful time in my own company. Something I found useful and reflective during this moment of global anxiety.
