Bree Hollis runs a Facebook page that mainly focuses on fine-art photography around the Horowhenua District. 

Photos taken by Bree Hollis show the true spirit of the Palmerston North CBD, looking like a freaky ghost town with no sign of movement or life. It’s as if all residents have abandoned the city.

The Coronavirus lockdown has caused the whole of New Zealand to close down; this does incl. Small businesses, restaurants, butchers, clothing stores, cinemas, and much more bringing a halt to economic activity while everyone stays in-doors to stop the spread of COVID-19.
