Viewing Melbourne from a different perspective

Now this looks fascinating. 

I haven't yet seen in it, but a new photography book that has just been released called Abandoned Melbourne: Lockdown, portrays the Victorian capital at its most vulnerable.

Described as "his hauntingly beautiful". it is a collection of photographs of Melbourne while it  was deserted during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Abandoned Melbourne depicts Melbourne as 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 to vistas of a different nature to usual and reveals downtown Melbourne as it has never been witnessed before.

The book is published by Australia Through Time and retails for $24.99 paperback.
