Walkies Photographic Art

Then & Now Walkies

by Chris Page


July 2018, I set out to capture a picture of Life and the Social Interaction of Whitstable High Street, the movements of people, dogs and cars that all creates the vibe of the bustling street scene. I was pleased with the result, for me it incapsulated my memories of the Whitstable that I love as a child, without focusing on the beach of this seaside town.


May 2020, I returned back to the same spot, but now deep in the Coronavirus Lockdown and with Social Distancing on the High Street; it had lost its vibe, lost its life and has become flattened. Even Her Royal Majesty now looks grey and lonely in her self-isolation on the wall. Boots the Chemist has changed its window display from a colourful sun cream promotion to a subdued "thank you to key workers" statement. The wet surfaces and stormy sky accentuated the oppressiveness of the national human story, which is lockdown and social distancing in our local communities.
