This is a photo of me and my dad playing monopoly. I chose this photo because playing with my family makes me feel like I belong and that I am home. It is an activity that takes a long time which is why we are playing it in lockdown. It makes me feel included.

This image was entered in the Heaton Normal Intermediate School Art Department Lockdown ‘Bubble Photography Competition’. The Theme was - Tūrangawaewae - Our safe place, the place where we feel we belong. Students were asked to photograph things that they and their family had been doing in their bubble that helped them feel safe and gave them a sense of belonging.
