When we all stayed at home (the first time!)

23 December 2020

Grange Park resident Katrina Campbell's dream of making a book out of her large collection of photographs recording life under lockdown has been turned into reality. There was a large enough and quick enough response to her Kickstarter campaign for her to get the book, When We All Stayed at Home, out in time for Christmas, hand delivered to addresses in the areas where the pictures were taken - Palmers Green, Winchmore Hill, Bush Hill Park, Edmonton and Enfield.

Tales of Life under Lockdown - the book

23 November 2020

Winchmore Hill photographer Katrina Campbell is planning to turn her online exhibition Tales of Life under Lockdown into a book with the title When We All Stayed at Home and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to have it printed and published in time for Christmas.

What an excellent way of recording and remembering an extraordinary year!
