ANZAC Day Portraits 2020

When:
Every day until Fri 07 May 2021
Details:
When our veterans stood silently alone in remembrance.

All community activities in 2020 had been significantly impacted by COVID 19 and the Central Coast was in Stage 3 lockdown which meant no more than 5 people at a gathering.
The ANZAC Day Memorial Services were cancelled.

Lisa Haymes-Artist

"I was commissioned by the Central Coast Council to photograph a portrait of a Veteran in the comfort of their own home adhering to social distance on Anzac Day morning at 5:30am.

It came to mind that there were many more Veterans isolated at home, so with the help of Leasha Craig who facilitated the meetings, we set off over the course of the year to photograph some of the remaining Central Coast Veterans through a glass window or door frame, keeping in mind the 1.5 metre distance required to photograph them on those quiet, still isolated mornings and to share with you where they were on Anzac Day 2020.

This photography exhibition will give a personalised face to local Veterans and their stories, honouring their courage and bravery.

It is my hope that this ANZAC Day Portrait 2020 series taken during Covid 19 shines a light on the Veterans and the Returned Services League and that it shares powerful stories of the men and women who served their Country"
