Queen Elizabeth Lying in State Westminster Abbey on TV living room, Yorkshire

I’ve always felt photography has this inimitable ability to mark both global and personal moments of significance. To lay down markers in our own and shared histories. To reflect “how it was” for us. The pictures shared today and this week, will be well planned and rehearsed. As a photographer, at such magnetic moments like this, it can be tempting to feel that if you’re not at the centre of it, you’re missing it. That ‘fear of missing out’ can be quite a crippling emotion. But as time passes and the “iconic” imagery loses its impact, it is the photos from outside of that centre that become more interesting. That become essential to telling the whole story.
