A street in Brixton is currently lined with “for sale” style signs, as an art exhibition. Not just art though, but photographs of people who have worked through the pandemic and the exhibition tells their story.
A total of 34 people, ranging from a midwife and a supermarket worker to an undertaker and an anaesthetist. Each of these storytellers shares their hopes and fears in this unique portrait of life during the pandemic.
For the portraits, each sitter was asked to choose an object that has been close to them during the lockdown.
The photography display runs along Dalberg Road, Brixton until 10th January, and then may tour other streets.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
