A PHOTOGRAPHIC project by Rick Senley, “A Year in Lockdown”, is celebrating Guiting Power, a Cotswolds village in Gloucestershire, and its residents.

The project has its origins in a plan to photograph the village shopkeeper’s last day at work, as she was retiring at the age of 100.

 

Mr Senley then began making weekly shopping deliveries to isolated residents who were shielding at home during the first lockdown, and decided to extend the project to as many villagers as agreed to be photographed. He hopes to put together two books of photos, one of villagers and one depicting the changing seasons over the past 12 months in and around the village.

Profits from book sales are to be donated to the roof fund of St Michael and All Angels’, Guiting Power. An exhibition in the church is planned to go ahead when restrictions are lifted; date to be confirmed.
