ABANDONED MELBOURNE – LOCKDOWN
by Gavin John
“…an important bit of documentation, encapsulating a piece of our history and I think it is an important book for people to have.” – Denis Walter – 3AW (Melbourne)
“It is a very important part in the incredible history of this amazing city.” – Tony Moclair – 3AW (Melbourne)
“They are really interesting pictures and you’ve certainly captured a moment in time.” – Ali Moore – ABC Melbourne
“…beautifully conveys the ugliness of lockdown.” – Luke Grant – 2GB (Sydney)
“Abandoned Melbourne presents a collection of photographs of the perennially awarded world’s most liveable city rendered empty, abandoned and in Covid lockdown during 2020. Abandoned Melbourne depicts Melbourne vacant, with the CBD’s places and spaces, customarily buzzing, rendered motionless and without life. Landscape photographer Gavin John, a long-term resident of Melbourne, turned his camera and his focus onto vistas of a different nature and reveals downtown Melbourne as it has never been witnessed before.”
