CHILDREN

SHORT LIST

Statement

The Rocketgirl Chronicles

As Melbourne struggled through over 240 days of restrictions - everyone needed to find way to keep going. Small wins. Like making a space helmet for your child fascinated by the night sky. And a suit. Too bad that the novelty of a costume doesn’t last. Stories however, seem to have worked since forever. So we took the costume and went looking for stories. With a little imagination stories can be found anywhere. These analogue photographs are the memories from the stories we found. The lockdown has now ended. But the time spent together exploring and imagining is one special gift to keep.
