Women in Photography Create Images Inspired by Music During Lockdown


Members of the Phlock Community were inspired by a challenge to use music as a source of inspiration for their photography during the lockdown period. From Abbey Road to Florence and the Machine and a whole host of music genres and song lyrics in between they created beautiful, sometimes humorous, moving and storytelling imagery. Some were inspired by album covers, others by lyrics or the simple joy of dancing to a favourite song.

This challenge brought a lot of light into the artist’s lives during a challenging period of time and we hope that this gallery will do the same for you.

All the things that I wanna be

“I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you”

– Florence and the Machine
