Photo Diary: The Dunn School in the age of Coronavirus

Spring 2020

Dunn School Facilities Manager, Wayne Swan, was keen to capture the eerie emptiness of the Dunn School during the Covid-19 Spring of 2020. Although the department never fully closed, with Covid-19 research underway and a small amount of other research activity, the department was largely empty with labs deserted and the previously manicured Dunn School garden gone to seed.

As the department slowly emerges from lockdown in June 2020 corridors have been marked as one-way, maximum room occupancy signs have been adhered to doors and café furniture socially distanced. The department is now set to embrace the new normal. Wayne’s camera has captured it all.
