Our Lockdown Collection
During lockdown Volpa worked with award winning press photographer Graeme Hart, owner of Perthshire Picture Agency, to develop a photographic collection of team images to capture our new “through the screen” way of working.
Lockdown presented us with a very unusual and creative opportunity to show our team off in their natural habitats. What has emerged from the project is a unique suite of images that fully captures this moment in time for both our team members and the business.
The photographic collection reflects what we believe will be our “new normal” for the foreseeable future as we move out of the coronavirus pandemic. The images were taken by Graeme through a variety of screen formats and screen sharing apps including Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger to reflect the full range of technological interaction tool that we now use in an average day’s work to stay in touch with clients.
Like many agencies the practicalities of a socially distanced office are going to be a challenge, so we have already accepted that we will be working as a dispersed team for the foreseeable future. These images are a realistic view of how our clients will be interacting with us for possibly months to come and, far from being a remote experience for clients, this has been quite an intimate experience for many – seeing into each other’s homes and lives in ways we have never done before. Graeme’s images capture the spirit of lockdown for us perfectly.
