COVID-19 has had a terrible impact on everyone. Schools and workplaces have been closed, the elderly in care homes have not been able to see loved ones and everyone has lost someone they cared about. Many people, young and old, are struggling emotionally with little support or help. It has taken such a dreadful toll on life and emotions. As I was looking through my images of starling murmurations, I began thinking about the large numbers of birds flying by and I felt it mirrored the huge numbers of people affected by COVID and I began to think about those people I knew personally who had been lost to COVID and wanted to represent these thoughts through my imagery.
