Discarded Gloves – Chris Mear

Walking to and from work during the first lockdown of 2020, for some reason, I found myself drawn to the presence of the protective gloves that found themselves discarded on and around the footpaths on which I stepped.

I am a photographer, I was awarded the Free Range Art Award at the annual Free Range Art & Design Show in London, 2010. In 2013, Snibston Discovery Museum organised my first solo exhibition and later published my first book, 2014. I currently work in retail.
