Documenting Peterculter through the Covid Pandemic

26th of June 2023

Documenting Peterculter through the Covid Pandemic is currently on show at Peterculter Medical Practice to give the community a space to see 12 of the images from the project.

The photographs were taken in Peterculter during the initial lockdown to document the visual changes that occurred in the village during such a challenging time.
Ranging from as subtle as a light left on at the medical practice with someone working late into the night, to profoundly deserted streets, illuminated Covid 19 road signs and empty pubs on a Saturday night.


Not all the changes were negative with many highlighting the incredible resilience of the community and its desire to help lift the spirits of people experiencing isolation, loneliness, and anxiety. The ‘Snake Rock’ at the platform on the old railway line, the colourful knitted creations that appeared on trees, and an array of visual support for our NHS workers all highlighted the community’s desire to keep its head up and get through the long night.



I would like to extend a huge thank you to the staff at the medical practice for the incredible support they provide the community and for giving me the opportunity to exhibit this project.

I hope by sharing the photographs it will help celebrate the strength of the local community as it looks to the future.
