Isolate + Create: Billy Plummer

Photographer Billy Plummer creating beauty in isolation. These images are the first of many isolation projects and creative exploration in our shifting narrative. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

“It’s an artist’s duty to reflect the times”
– Nina Simone⁠

Surrounded by darkness. Alive and pristine.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

This plant stood out bright in the shadow of a huge stand of trees with sunlight on it on one of Billy’s “isolation walks” this week. It summed up how he was feeling. It was only 10 yards from his home so he grabbed a black cloth, 2 stands and put them behind it to isolate it from everything around it.⁠⠀
