These images are from a series based on the poem ‘Ode to a Nightingale’, by John Keats. The series is about the transience of life and nature around us, as we watch stuck inside our homes. The poem is one about suffering, but there is one stanza full of beautiful imagery which serves as a moment of escapism. Keats explores the beauty of the nightingale’s surroundings as the seasons change from Spring to Summer, just as I have explored the beauty of my domestic, everyday surroundings through my photos.
“Fast fading violets cover’d up in leaves;
And mid-May’s eldest child,
The coming musk-rose, full of dewy wine,” John Keats
