Isolate + Create: ‘The Long Night’ by Craig Wall

‘Like pretty much every other person on this planet at the moment, I’ve been rendered absolutely numb, jaw agape, as each day passes. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

To keep myself sane, I’ve been working on finishing various photographic projects that I had to place on the back burner as I balanced a busy schedule shooting work for commercial clients with parenting 2 small children. As horrible as the circumstances are, the upside is that it has helped me to re-discover what drew me to photography in the first place. This social isolation project came out of that journey back inwards.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

This terrifyingly contagious virus is tearing apart the very fabric of what it means to be human – as a species we are defined by our need to be physically near each other, regardless of whether we are interacting intimately or co-existing independently in the same space. It’s at the very heart of who we are and how we got here. It’s our culture.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

This project is my attempt to express the feeling of isolation that comes from having to deny that most basic of human instincts.’⁠⠀
