Bury St Edmunds photographer captures lockdown in new book




A professional photographer from Bury St Edmunds has compiled a book of lockdown pictures he took to raise money for the NHS.

Tom Soper took more than 30 photographs of his neighbours on their doorsteps in Victoria Street and has now made an A6 book to remember what he called ‘a very odd time’.

He said: “I chose Victoria Street due to its sense of community during lockdown, we were self-isolating and lots of people on the street helped us, so I wanted in return to concentrate on them for this project.

“Photographers have always captured unusual times in history and I felt I should put together a small piece for historical record during this time too.”

The books are on sale for £5 each – to buy a copy go to www.tomsoperphotography.com/doorstep/booklet
