“Writing is different from texting”, several participants have said, after they’ve written the letters.
I asked people in London (South London since it had to be within my walking distance) if they can write a letter to someone they’ve been thinking of or have been wanting to meet since the COVID-19 lockdown began.
Since the lockdown started, I hear that people began to text more, but phone calls to each other are becoming even more common.
As much as we are scared of what the virus will bring, we are craving for connection and missing someone more than ever.
Letters are one of the most intimate forms of communications in this hyper connected world.
I will keep shooting this project till the lockdown ends. Hope you will revisit this gallery to read the new letters.
