These photos capture the eerie and unsettling beauty of Auckland in lockdown

Looking for a creative outlet during the Covid-19 lockdown, self-employed photographer Jono Parker was mesmerised by the strange atmosphere of an Auckland with almost empty streets.

“I love Auckland and even though what we are all going through is quite unsettling and foreign to us all, I thought it was important to document this moment in our history and hopefully people find the beauty and emotion in the moments I have captured,” Parker says.

Parker captured these moving and sometimes unsettling images during his daily bike rides, practising safe social distancing at all times. Take a look at A Forgotten Normality.
