While West End theatres remain dark, photographer Troy David Johnston, who is normally employed in the wardrobe department at Wicked, is shining a spotlight on what remains of the usually bustling streets of London.

"With the closure of the West End theatres, I decided I needed something practical to do." says Johnston. "So I would take my camera with me when I went out cycling for my allowance of exercise time. And usually I was cycling through Central London. As I cycled through the quiet streets, I started taking pictures of our closed theatres."
