Twilight Together: Portraits of Ireland at Home by Ruth Medjber

'A moving and uplifting record of our nation's lockdown' Sunday Independent

The essential book for 2020, capturing the heart-breaking and uplifting stories that made it a year we will never forget


In March 2020, the arrival of Coronavirus in Ireland saw our world change overnight. We watched in shock as it spread throughout the world with devastating consequences. We stopped travelling, we worked from home, we celebrated birthdays, anniversaries and new arrivals via our screens. Many also had to grieve from a distance, isolated and alone.

But the pandemic also became a time of coming together, of community spirit, of small kindnesses and boundless creativity. We saw frontline workers make extraordinary sacrifices, musicians perform from their front rooms, neighbourhood bingo and open-air film screenings.

In Twilight Together Ruth Medjber has captured all of this and more. Visually stunning and deeply moving, she has photographed people all over Ireland at their front window at dusk, each with their own story to tell. Twilight Together is an extraordinary portrait of a pandemic by one of Ireland's most talented photographers and it is an important document for our times.

BEAUTIFUL ... [Twilight Together] documents how Ireland has lived since March, how we've adapted, how we've celebrated, albeit in different ways, how community has changed but flourished. Honestly, it's LOVELY -- Marian Keyes
A really lovely escape for everyone ... [It] gives us reason to keep on believing in the best part of us -- Oliver Callan * Ryan Tubridy Show, RTE Radio One *
During the first lockdown, photographer Ruth Medjber came up with the simple but effective idea to capture life through our windows. Twilight Together ... collects these striking yet ordinary portraits and illuminates a moment in history * Irish Times *
