Lockdown Imagination Challenge: Project by Eva Petro

I've always been interested in photography, but especially since it went digital. I love creating composite images using Photoshop Elements, my work being somewhat quirky, dark, and visually fascinating. My images don't necessarily need to mean anything in particular, I leave that up to the viewer to interpret as they wish.

Lockdown for me was very monotonous, being stuck at home with my husband plus 2 cats and a dog so I got to work on my interpretation of Covid, and got quite carried away. It was a challenge of the imagination and made the time pass in an exciting way. I also did a lot of creative black and white work during that time and found that having all that empty time made me focus a lot more than usual as there weren't as many distractions.

My 3 favourite images are seen here - I started off with some images viewed online of the virus, then imagined it lurking, waiting for a victim. Then I thought of all the little bubbles in the world and then of the world in lockdown. I have a large library of images to work from and use stock images when it's impossible to take the photos myself.
