Many of our photographers have been living in lockdown during the spring of 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Here we show how they have managed to shoot some really interesting images in challenging circumstances. From all parts of the UK and USA, Italy and Norway, India, Galapagos and Australia, our contributors found some amazing subjects, often literally on their doorstep!

To read the stories behind the lockdown images in this gallery, please take a look at our Photographers in Lockdown blog posts. Part 1 has a UK and European focus, while Part 2 talks about lockdown around the world.
