Lisa Butcher

After fifteen years of being a single mother, I finally had full time work, my forever home and good friends. Then Covid struck. Isolation was thrust upon us. The passing traffic on my busy street came to a stop, there was no more constant flow of visitors to my house and the constant rushing stopped. It was weird. The loneliness of being a single mother came crashing back in. It was just me and my kids ... again! This photographic essay shows my view of the outside world every day during lockdown.


Lisa Butcher's passion within the arts has always been photography. This work was intended to document the mundane repetitiveness of life in lockdown. She hopes one day she can look back on it and appreciate a moment of time that didn't last forever. Lisa spent lockdown renovating her ensuite.
