Jake Davis & Rob Jones (Khroma co-founders) documented over 40 of London’s most iconic nightclubs and venues whilst they were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Jake & Rob were inspired to create a time capsule of London’s clubs and venues in response to the prolonged closure of these institutions which they worked in frequently before the pandemic.
Shot entirely on medium format film, the photographs were taken at what would normally have been opening time. At this time of night, the streets outside would have once been bustling with life as people waited in anticipation to get onto their favourite dance-floors. These images serve as a reminder of the positive memories that we all associate with these spaces.
Taking the title from the #LetUsDance campaign during the pandemic, the project's aim was to raise awareness of the impact COVID-19 has had on the nightlife industry and help raise funds through a print sale to help the most in need venues through these final stages so that they can be enjoyed once more. 40% of the total profits from the sale went to the NTIA and distributed accordingly. To date over 150+ prints have been sold around the world.
