Custodians For Covid

Custodians For Covid

British photographer Joanna Vestey has created a collection of photographs of theatres and their custodians in U.K.

As we all know, the performing arts industry is facing a very difficult time due to cover-19. These theatre venues have remained closed since the virus outbreak and are struggling to survive.

Joanna Vestey shot the moments when the custodians are in the empty theatres. They are key holders, front of house managers, master carpenters and other necessary roles for this industry.
