From rainbows and teddy bears, to messages of thanks for the continued hard work of NHS staff and key workers, photographer Brittany Woodman has been capturing the kindness being spread around the Golden Triangle area of the city.

Ms Woodman said: “This photo series captures the creativity and spirit of the Norwich community. In a world riddled with fear and worry look for the light, search for the colour.

“In the future it is images like these that we will look back on, reflecting a society that remained positive and thankful to their health service.”

“When I was out on my daily exercise I kept seeing these beautiful rainbows or messages in peoples windows and it made me feel happy even if seconds before I was feeling anxious or nervous about the pandemic.

“I chose the black and white colour contrast as I felt that illustrated exactly how I felt about the rainbows, a spark of colour and hope in a negative world.

“They are taken in the golden triangle area.

“I love my job as a photographer rushing around meeting people photographing and being creative.
