Unwatered office plants of lockdown – in pictures

Photographer Ricky Adam hadn’t intended to make any Covid projects, but when he returned to work at Leeds Arts University after lockdown, he immediately noticed the plants.

“The first I saw was withered to the point of no return. Then I spotted another. I ended up going into every office I could on every floor of every building to photograph the dead plants … I kept thinking of that chilling TS Eliot quote: ‘This is the way the world ends, not with a bang but a whimper.’”
