I began my lockdown walks by taking a closer look at my neighbourhood, creating collections of images under the series title The Road To Wellville.
I curated this particular collection around the colour red, but realise it appears to show elements of a crime scene, with undertones of the movies Blow Up and Don’t Look Now.
In hindsight I believe I have subconsciously responded to a real crime I witnessed early in lockdown, the memory of which I tried to suppress.
Researchers from Counting Dead Women project reported to MPs that in the first three weeks of lockdown 14 women and two children had been killed.
Your Sanctuary is one of the charities working to help people suffering from domestic violence.

My sister has lived in the Puglia region of Italy for most of her adult life.  This week, as the Italian government eases it’s lockdown restrictions, she can leave her home for the first time in two months.  It’s also her birthday,  so I thought it would be nice to show some photography from her adoptive home.  Happy birthday Lynn Carrig x Ciao bella x

Last Easter I began creating a series of photography projects on the Dymchurch Sea Wall – documenting the beach it fronts, the low-lying land it protects, and how both locals and visitors use and respond to the wall.  This Easter, with so much having changed in the world, it feels timely to start sharing some of this work.  Here are a few selects from  Bank Holiday.Photography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights Reserved

Dymchurch Wall has been a vital sea defence on the Kent coast since it was first established by the Romans.   It’s current construction connects pale concrete walkways with art deco influenced design;  four miles of wall straddle flat marshland and vast sands, and a big sky gives an exquisite quality of light. The surrealist artist Paul Nash made many paintings of the wall most famously The Shore, and the actor and novelist Russell Thorndike based his Dr.Syn stories here at Dymchurch-under-the-Wall.  More recently a Banksy rat has appeared surfing the wall’s concrete curves.
As a photographer I am also inspired.
Last Easter I began photographing my own response to the wall, documenting the beach it fronts, the low-lying land it protects, and the people that are drawn there.  This Easter, with so much changed in the world, it feels timely to revisit this project.
“Serve God, honour the King, but first maintain the Wall”
Russell Thorndike

 

Respecting current government regulations I now walk to my Mother’s house everyday;  a journey along familiar roads I have driven a thousand times and more, and which I am seeing for the first time.  Here are some more pictures from The Road To Wellville #stayhome #protectthenhs #savelives

I’ll be out on the pavement again this evening, making some noise in appreciation of ALL the brave keyworkers working hard in difficult circumstances to keep us safe.

Until normal service is resumed I would like to continue my photo-blog by sharing with you (over the next few weeks/months?) recently published commissions, as well as previously unpublished archive photography.

 

Meanwhile this is the beginning of a new personal project (respecting current government regulations) recording the daily walk to my mother’s house in the London suburbs.  Here are a few  pictures from my first week on The Road to Wellville
Thank you very much for taking the time to visit.
Wishing you and yours safety and good health.
