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.

Dublin-born music and portrait photographer Ruth Medjber holds a BA (Photography) from DIT, and her work has appeared in Hot Press, NME, Rolling Stone, Kerrang! and Q Magazine. Medjber's portfolio includes photographs of Grace Jones, Beyoncé, Metallica, Billie Eilish and the Foo Fighters. Most recently, she documented Arcade Fire and Hozier on their tours of the UK and Europe, as well as covering the Glastonbury Festival for the BBC. With close ties to her community, she uses her creative talent to support local charitable causes and has a long-term project Women of Notes, which celebrates inspiring women in the Irish music industry in a bid to create a gender balance in music.
