Guinness resident explores loneliness and isolation through photography

Since the easing of lockdown, Tony Fisher a client at Riddings, one of Guinness Care’s Independent Living schemes in Derbyshire, has been able to resume taking photographs of people for his next exhibition entitled ‘Only the Lonely?’.

For the exhibition, due in Autumn 2020, he is currently taking photographs of people (ensuring social distancing) which explores loneliness, isolation and well-being, something he has battled with personally for over 40 years.

Tony said: “I have been interested in arts since I was at school and art college and have been taking pictures and making art all my life, it is something that gives me constant pleasure. Each picture I take means something to me and I love to capture the vibrant colours, and sometimes in monochrome, of the world around me and share them with others.
