As the world went into isolation in early 2020, photographers from all over the globe documented their experiences through pictures.
I however, did not.
I was a bit bummed that I hadn’t thought to. But little did I know I would get another chance with a second lockdown from July – November, here in Melbourne, Victoria.
Now that we’re on our way out, with most restrictions lifted, I feel it’s time I can share these images and reflect on a moment in history.
And lets hope with all our might that we will never have to home school ever again.
Towards the end of lockdown I had an appointment to get my eyes tested. I took my camera with me and snapped a few pictures of the almost empty shopping centre. It was very surreal to see so many stores closed, red and white tape everywhere, signs on every window stating how many customers were allowed inside at one time, not to mention all the social distancing stickers and Xs on the floor.
I felt the need to document it.
