When Melbourne faced back-to-back lockdowns with only a few weeks separating them, those of us up north we’re definitely feeling for the creative community. With shoots being cancelled, campaigns being put on hold and a lot of work drying up, photographers and models were undoubtedly feeling the burn of the lockdown. Naturally, when there was that brief window in between lockdowns, people were feeling their creative juices flow, which is how this week’s Tuesday Without was born.
Here, photographer Jesse Tallis and stunner Mary Vitinaros take to the Button Factory in the outer Melbourne suburb of Cheltenham for a shoot inspired by a sweaty gym session. Hitting the bag as light leaks into the warehouse, this epic shoot is proof that it takes pressure (or repeat lockdowns) to produce diamonds.
