The thirty scenes depicted in this work reflect the thirty days in April 2020 of lockdown in Stanley Tasmania. The world had changed, helicopters flew over-head and roadblocks were erected to prevent us travelling far. No tourists came for the Easter break, the shops were all shut, the chairlift sat silent and the penguins were not visited.
But the wind still blew, the rain still fell, the sun rose and set, the tide came in and out and the magnificence that is Stanley comforted my soul.
