Photography project will highlight the struggles that Doncaster businesses have faced during the pandemic
An interactive exhibition will take place in Doncaster town centre which is focused around businesses hardship through Covid-19.
On April 26 the town centre will be flooded with photographs taken by Maisie Lovett and her fellow creatives who have organised this project.
Maisie, 21, from Kirk Sandall, said: “Through collecting images of these businesses I have learnt just how resilient they are.
“They have had to adapt how they operate.
“Many started doing takeaways and added social distancing measures.
“I’ve met businesses who have grown this year too; it's not all negative.”
The Glass Strawberry, Jimmy Pigs and Brix Coffee are some of the businesses that are taking part in the project.
On the day of the exhibition photos will be displayed inside the businesses as well as on posters throughout the town centre.
Maisie has also taken shots of more general areas of Doncaster such as the Frenchgate Shopping Centre and the Racecourse.
“The photos will be displayed with QR codes,” Maisie said.
“We wanted to make it interactive.
“If people scan the code they can upload their own photos to the online exhibition.”
Maisie started the project as part of her university work - she is a student at Manchester University.
She is working collaboratively with other students across the county to complete the exhibitions.
Other students' work will also be displayed here in Doncaster and Masie’s local photos will be put up in Sheffield, Liverpool and Wigan.
“The idea was to bring these towns and cities together in a unique way,” she said.
