Still Life

For two years Henry Bell and Angela Catlin documented the pandemic in Glasgow through their poems and photographs. In dialogue with each other and the city around them, they recorded their shared isolation, the panic of the early pandemic, the unease and the peace of lockdown, the increasing frustration and political anger and the astonishing highs and lows of a country going through a historic crisis. The photographs and poems in Still Life offer a glimpse of the grief, fear, solidarity and moments of joy that the experience of Covid-19 brought to Scotland.
