York is doing its bit in this second lockdown.
Residents are obeying the new restrictions, as part of the latest city-wide and national push to save lives – with the hope of ushering in better times ahead.
And while most of the city centre reflects this hunkering down – shops closed and shuttered, streets quiet – there is still a significant minority of businesses still opening their doors and serving the people.
The government is permitting a wider range of businesses classed as essential to continue to trade.
And York photographer Duncan Lomax – who runs Ravage Productions – wanted to highlight their efforts.
“It is a gloomy time for most of us, but I wanted to capture some of the positive side of this lockdown,” Duncan said.
“These photographs are a celebration of York’s remarkable independent businesses, their resilience, and the amazing people who run them.
“I hope lots of people will get out and support them through this lockdown – as well as supporting those now trading online only.
“And when everything does reopen, let’s get out and make it a shop local Christmas. We don’t want to lose any of these great York businesses.”
