It’s May 2020. The UK has been in lockdown for over a month leaving many people feeling isolated and anxious. Photographer Nick Pumphrey turned to where he feels most at home – the sea. In May he dedicated to taking his camera in the sea for every dawn of the month, and sharing his experience each morning with ten photographs on Instagram with the hashtag #DawnDaysOfMay.

I am endlessly intrigued by these swaths of colorful nylon floats above the beaches and down the California coastline by Thomas Jackson.
‘Bond’ appears as a combination of photographic, sculptural and performative elements. The Finnish photographer Anna Reivilä uses the traditional rope technique to bind rocks, trees and other elements of the landscape, presenting a series of images that are ultimately representative of transient objects.
Friends asking: How are you doing?
Me: Sending them one of these photos by Brooke DiDonato.
I am a huge fan of Broke Didonato’s photography. Especially at this moment in time, I am really feeling her photography, as it sums up how this ‘social distancing’ makes me feel.
For 27 years, Deanna Dikeman took photographs as she waved good-bye and drove away from visiting her parents at their home in Sioux City, Iowa. She started in 1991 with a quick snapshot, and continued taking photographs with each departure. She never set out to make this series. She just took these photographs as a way to deal with the sadness of leaving. It gradually turned into their good-bye ritual. And it seemed natural to keep the camera busy, because she had been taking pictures every day while she was there. These photographs are part of a larger body of work she calls Relative Moments, which has chronicled the lives of her parents and other relatives since 1986. When she discovered the series of accumulated “leaving and waving” photographs, she found a story about family, aging, and the sorrow of saying good-bye.
I love this so much.
