Restrictions, limitations, distance. We stay distanced from others. There’s no certainty. Capturing subjects at home, at early stage of the pandemic, saw joy and frustrations reflected. With insight into the expected, more challenging stage ahead, the subjects were posed with intent. The refined, printed format of a book, allows the beholder to experience the journey privately and intimately.
The photographs displayed here are accompanied by three words, as provided by the subject/s of the image, when asked to describe their emotions and experience during the early stages of Melbourne's lockdown due to Covid-19. The entire double-spread pages will be displayed in the 'Artist' section, to support these photographs.
