When we went into social distancing, and then lockdown, I was due to visit my Mum for Mother’s Day, she lives in a care home 4 hours drive from me. Instead of making the trip on that Sunday I photographed the many rainbows that had sprung up in windows around Bristol.
In the following week news of the situation in care homes became darker and darker.
The rainbows stand for something so hopeful and positive. The support for the NHS will not be lost on my Mum after she spent 40 years in their service.
I wanted to recognise and credit the creators of the rainbows and spread the hope they’d given me to more people. As I worked on the project many of the kids told me that they were making Lego that day, exactly what I used to do with my Mum.
This project is as much about the reflection in the window as it is about what’s behind it and is dedicated to Kate Skipp.
