Every day during the lockdown I’ve been selecting an item from the Eye Archive, including pieces such as ‘Reputations: Louise Fili’ in Eye 87, ‘Reputations: Kathy Ryan’ in Eye 73, ‘Big subject, little pictures’ in Eye 44 and ‘I don’t use a Mac but I know a man who can’ in Eye 13.
I write these words with the springtime sun pouring in through the windows of my south London home and hardly any background noise – no arguments, road traffic noise or regular air traffic we usually hear, just birdsong, muffled chatter and the occasional buzz of a helicopter heading for the hospital. It’s a sobering reminder that some people are very much worse off than we are, and how grateful we all are to anyone who is part of the solution to the current crisis.
Be seeing you
