GREG ELMS ︎ SHRUNKEN WORLD
During the Lockdowns, small things assumed a much greater importance in my world.
I live in Melbourne, Australia, where we’ve had severe restrictions placed on our movement during the Covid-19 Lockdowns. Our world has been reduced to a largely homebound existence.
Small things – especially food – have assumed a much larger presence for me.
Seeing beauty in everyday objects is a common thread in my work, and whilst the Lockdown has been a difficult experience, it’s also given me time to re-focus on my immediate surroundings, and in so doing find wonder and solace.
