When the world shut down, Katrine Noer mailed disposable cameras to people all over the world who wanted to document their life during their lockdown.
The participants took one picture a day and added a note to the picture. When the film was out, the camera was returned, and the photos developed. Based on the pictures, Katrine has curated the exhibition Lockdown Diaries, which can be seen at Street Coffee in Vestergade, Aarhus.
Lockdown Diaries remind us of a time when our plans were put on hold. A lovers’ quarrel. Birthdays without company. Two boys longing to play together. The rays of sun shining through the curtains of a bedroom.
The project included countries like Greenland, Spain, Vietnam, Holland, Denmark, Israel, Australia, India – and many more.
More photos from the project can be found on the Instagram account @lockdown___diaries.
Katrine Noer is currently doing her third term at DMJX. She was attending her second term when the school was shut down and she made this project.
