Created during the coronavirus lockdown, this is a collaborative project between Jack Low and myself. All images were taken on our respective 'night walks' during allotted daily exercise when the street were at their emptiest. These images were then posted to Instagram under the shared hashtag #nightwalkzine. Personally, this vague structure to the days gave me something to focus on and look forward to. In lieu of regular routine, these small nocturnal ventures gave us space, and allowed us to clear our heads. We now have a gallery of over 250 images from which Instagram users are able to curate and share their own unique sequence, and order a physical copy of their one-of-a-kind 'night walk'. During the lockdown and associated social distancing measures, this was a valuable way to utilise and bridge digital spaces, fostering a sense of tangible 'togetherness' in the exchange of printed pictures.
