London Fields by Night: A photographer's journey in lockdown

Photographer Kristian Buus discusses his new series of photographs and interviews, entitled 2x1 - Lockdown London Fields by Night, with the Gazette.
The only place to meet friends and family outside your corona bubble in lockdown London is outside.
With all pubs and restaurants closed, many choose the nearest park bench to catch up, some bring hot drinks, others a can of beer. Social distance rules now demand you can only meet one at a time, so meetings are now more intimate even in the freezing cold.
Many work from home so meeting up outside is important to feel the world is still turning and many meet after hours and when it's dark.
It is November and I use the pools of light in the park to grab these moments.
