An artist who has captured the St Albans community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic will be displaying his photographs in the St Albans Museum + Gallery.
Nic Madge, whose Pandemic Portraits series has photographed how the community has been affected throughout the pandemic, is nearly complete with over 400 photos taken.
The project which Nic started last year continues to give him a “buzz” and he told StAlbansNews before the gallery reopening on May 19 that he was excited to see it displayed.
He said: “I feel very lucky that what I am doing is allowing everyone to express themselves and describe their fears, hopes, good things and bad to see how their lives have been affected for better and worse.”
Nic added that many people are looking forward to seeing their photo displayed in the gallery on a digital screen which will allow the whole collection to be viewed.
He said: “The photos will be displayed on a 65-inch digital screen with a soundtrack composed by local musicians which reflect the emotions described in the text.
“Lots of people are very keen to see themselves on screen, people who have seen it describe it as very moving.”
Pandemic Portraits will feature as an exhibition at the gallery when it opens next week until September 30.
