Photo Gallery: More than Bricks and Mortar by Caroline Wallbank Photography
The COVID-19 crisis has altered how we interact with others in a drastic way. While the situation is still critical, people have responded by strengthening a sense of community in their area and providing much-needed help for the more vulnerable members of society.
More than Bricks and Mortar, a photography project by Caroline Wallbank Photography, depicts the community in Edgeley, Stockport and explores how its residents have come together during the current crisis. The images provide an insight into everyday life and how the locals feel about being part of Edgeley’s community.
Wallbank says: “I wanted to reflect this sense of belonging that all the residents feel regardless of their differences in background or culture. More than Bricks and Mortar documents the people of Edgeley and how they feel about the place they live and how they’ve come together both before and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The project was validated by The Olive Cafe, Edgeley and was due to be exhibited there before the country was put on lockdown.”
