Working Through Change: Fergus Coyle

It has been one year since the UK went into its first lockdown. This past year has been difficult for so many people and the creative industries are no exception. Prior to the Covid pandemic the creative industries were the fastest growing sector of the UK economy; however with the whole world coming to a standstill, many creatives have found themselves without work and without funding. This has led to numerous people having to change the way in which they work in order to sustain a living during these uncertain times.

Slightly closer to the front of the image there is a girl posing for a photograph in front of the river wearing an orange dress.
