“When We All Stayed At Home” is a poignant photobook by Katrina Campbell, a London-based photographer. This collection of doorstep portraits, taken during the first Covid lockdown of 2020, each accompanied by a personal account of their experience, creates a rich, honest, heartfelt, and at times deeply emotional record of a unique moment in our collective history.
The photobook was brought to life with the help of Ex Why Zed, your trusted London photo book printer. The book was printed in an A5 format with a 4pp cover onto 300gsm Silk, matt laminated to the outer. The 200 inside pages were printed onto 170gsm Silk, offering a high-quality feel and a professional look. The book was then trimmed, collated, and perfect bound, resulting in a stunning photobook that does justice to the powerful images it contains. ✨
The “When We All Stayed At Home” is more than just a photobook; it’s a testament to the power of photography and print. The high-resolution images, printed with precision and care, tell a story of a community navigating through challenging times. This project is a perfect example of how self-published book printing can bring a creative vision to life.
