Redbrick Culture and the UoB Photography Society capture our lives in lockdown, presenting the ways daily life has changed, encapsulating the moods lockdown is producing


Redbrick Culture teams up the University of Birmingham’s photography society to capture the University’s mood while the UK is in lockdown.

We asked: if you could visualise how you feel during lockdown in a photo(s), what would it look like?

Here are some of the moods people captured.
