The former Guardian photographer Denis Thorpe, 88, has been shielding at home in Stockport for most of the year and taking pictures of his garden and its visitors. The images are to be published in a book, Birds in my Lockdown Garden
I’ve spent most of my working life photographing people and places. Usually on film in glorious black and white. Being locked down has forced me to take a closer look at my surroundings.
When I was away on assignments, my wife found time in her own busy life to make a beautiful garden. Since Patricia died seven years ago, I have come to appreciate the wonderful legacy she left me.
