Join us as we hear from two Cambridge School of Art colleagues - Duncan Ganley will present his photographic project Inventory of Empty Streets, in collaboration with the book designer Nicolas Jeeves.

Inventory of Empty Streets is a photographic project documenting every street inside central London’s Congestion Charge Zone (CCZ) during the UK’s first Covid-19 lockdown in the spring of 2020. Through the forms of photography, long-form moving image and twelve volumes of artists books, Inventory of Empty Streets stands as a unique visual record of a city under extraordinary circumstances. Through a methodology of mapping/categorization/indexing, the project, comprising over three thousand images, navigates the strange physical, temporal and psychological territory of this period, revealing how much we have yet to understand.

Duncan Ganley’s practice explores the blurred lines between evidence and fiction in the forms of the photograph, the moving image and their contexts. He is Senior Lecturer for BA Photography and MA Fine Art at Cambridge School of Art. An exhibition catalogue of his Inventory of Empty Streets project was published in 2022.
