The UK was put into lockdown on 23 March 2020 in response to the rapid acceleration of the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) across the country. Fakenham felt the cumulative human, economic and social impacts of the lockdown as severely as any other small town. The 800-year-old market closed, family members were separated from each other, children were home educated, people worked from home, the town centre became deserted, almost all retail outlets (apart from essential services) were closed, and people began to wear masks and to socially distance.
This photo book seeks to capture elements of the situation in Fakenham during lockdown. The scope is not exhaustive by any means, but the images do, I hope, show the shock and fear felt by people at what was happening, as well as their enormous practicality, resilience and good humour.
The book is staple bound, and printed in full colour on 32 pages of 170gsm silk paper with a high quality 300gsm matt laminated silk cover. It is 210mm x 210mm in size and features 35 original full colour images made by Keith Osborn between March and May 2020 together with accompanying text.
