Author / Presenters: 
Belinda Jackson & Jude van Daalen

When COVID-19 hit Melbourne harder than a runaway tram, our lives changed – literally overnight. The limited-edition book 'Together Apart: Life in Lockdown' gives a rare glimpse into life in lockdown, beautifully capturing the isolation, frustration, hope, humour, and innate human need for togetherness that became part of our daily lives. This exhibition of black & white photography and stories are drawn from the book.

Photographed and written by Melburnians Jude van Daalen and Belinda Jackson, it is a beautiful, black-and-white coffee table book featuring 60 interviews and portraits created during Melbourne's long lockdown, see www.lockdownstories.com.au

Meet the Authors: Photographer Jude van Daalen and editor Belinda Jackson join Williamstown Library to talk about their experience capturing Melbourne's lockdown through 'Together Apart: Life in Lockdown'.
This event will run in-person and online simultaneously - bookings essential.

Jude van Daalen is a portrait photographer and owner of The Melbourne Portrait Studio, see themelbourneportraitstudio.com.au
