Melbourne photographer Nick Wellman documented people at their place of residence during COVID-19 pandemic restrictions in Melbourne. A photographic capture of two lockdowns, Quarantine Castles is a social portrait of residents isolating at home during the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions of 2020.

Part one is an introspective time capsule where Melbourne photographer Nick Wellman took daily portraits of his own household for the duration of Melbourne’s initial lockdown.
