The Escalator by Leanne Lindsay

This was such a strange photograph to be able to take. This photograph was taken in the middle of the morning in Sydney’s Darling Harbour, a usually very busy part of Sydney. There is usually a vibrancy to this area – lots of tourists taking photos, people shopping and going about their business, cafes and restaurants are full to the brim with customers. On this day, in the middle of the COVID pandemic, there were very few people around. It was so surreal that I had to document it. There is a lone person at the top of the escalator who looked so small and lonely, when the escalator would normally be full of people going up and down, going about their business.

Born in Adelaide in 1962, Leanne Lindsay’s family moved to Sydney when she was 12 years old. She was gifted her first camera for her 21st birthday but a break-in saw her precious camera stolen just 3 years later. It was only in her late 50s she was able to afford to replace it and now in her 60s she has discovered a passion that was sadly lost many years ago. She now photographs families and newborns but enjoys architectural photography and landscapes in particular.
