Permitted Walks by Marsha Dunstan
Permitted Walks by Marsha Dunstan is her limited edition photo-diary of the first 51 days of the 2020 coronavirus lockdown, when the population of the UK was permitted one period only of outdoor exercise a day.
“I chose to walk and at some point every day I set out from our flat on the Isle of Dogs, London. I walked and walked, as if forward motion could comfort or make sense of the news, the numbers of dead, the strangeness and fear. Meanwhile, spring was magnificent, impervious to the invisible invader that had emptied out my everyday… During this time, I walked 258 km with my camera. This is my diary: one image from my permitted walk per day and a front page headline from a national newspaper.”
