by Ian Willms
When the pandemic came, we all began to feel the impact of global sufferance and fear.
The politicisation of vaccines and the widespread distrust of science and the news media left little room for balanced dialog.
It became seemingly impossible to say anything about the pandemic without being forced into one category or another.
This is why SICK DAYS is presented with very little context or background information.
The viewers must interpret the photographs for themselves and impose their own meanings and narratives.
The variance of understanding from one viewer to the next serves to highlight the newfound gulfs that exist between individuals who previously felt as one.
SICK DAYS was photographed by Ian Willms between March 2020 and August 2021. It was edited by Liam Crockard and Ian Willms and designed by Liam Crockard.
The work is available as a book which can be purchased here -
