In Lockdown with Teresa Lyle

Next up in our series of lockdown photography features we meet Teresa Lyle, who is managing to take a lighter look at the current situation with a creative project recording her day to day life with an unusual housemate…

‘My name is Teresa, I’m currently based in Northern Ireland.

The images are from the Series When Cobhídh Came To Stay.  Isolating alone, the work uses art and humour as a coping mechanism with the lockdown in place due to Covid-19. I have created a room-mate to interact with and the images represent activities carried out by many people during lockdown.

Alternatively if the lockdown hadn’t have taken place I would be currently working on protest art and working towards a Masters in Photography.

The project is keeping my mind occupied during the lockdown making the process a little bit easier to deal with.

Stay home and stay safe.’

All photos are created, taken and copyrighted by Teresa. When Cobhídh Came To Stay and other photography projects can be found on Teresa’s Instagram – you can view and follow her work there.
