Natural Connections Photographic exhibition Belfast Exposed was delighted to partner with Translink on a photography competition to capture the ‘Natural Connections’ which have sustained, surrounded, supported and encouraged people and communities since 23 March 2020, the first day of lockdown.
The last year will leave a permanent memory on the lives of people around the world. A number of everyday life experiences have become an essential part of our wellbeing. The importance of nature in our lives, from a small flower in a garden to climbing a newly discovered hill, or just sitting on a beach listening to the waves, never before has the connection to nature become more crucial.
Coupled with the challenges of lockdown, bubbles and restricted gatherings, the need for connections has become ever more craved.
