Photography: Snapshots of Adlington in the Age of Corona
Posted On 18/07/2022
Snapshots of Adlington in the Age of Corona is a project devised for photographer Ian Smith to creatively engage with our community during the first wave of the pandemic.
Around 300 people from our village joined the Facebook group to document how they coped during this time.
Smith says the power of the pictures comes from their ordinariness and how we all coped in our own individual manner while collectively responding to this unknown foe COVID-19 in the extraordinarily scary times of March 2020.
A selection of the photos are now on display at Noah’s Ark Kitchen and Deli, 104 Chorley Road, Adlington, Lancashire PR6 9LG. It will be on display in the cafe for the next few months.
See some visual art with some coffee and cake in one of Adlington’s most supportive creative cafes 📸☕️🍰🍔
Thanks to all contributors, cafe owner Tamzin Massey and of course Ian Smith aka Dad for his dogged determination to see this project through.

I live in the North of England and spend a lot of time trying to get a toddler dressed in the morning, then the afternoon, then I give up and let her stay in her pyjamas because it's nearly bedtime again. I also like to help people who are stuck for words. That's it really. Those two things. It's a nice life.
Come find me online and say a BIG HELLO :-)
