Isolation photo diary

Between the ups and downs of the global pandemic and lockdown, I kept taking pictures. I intended to have a photo diary to describe my take on isolation and the extraordinary circumstances we’re living.

Time seemed to have lost its meaning; some days were painfully long, while it felt like Spring ended too quickly.

As family and friends were safe, it became clear that mulling over the news and social media was not an option.

Instead, it’s been a period of introspection, studies and observations, alternated with moments of anxiety because of the lack of clarity on the future.

I’m still mostly isolating and avoiding all unnecessary activities. Nevertheless, it feels like this isolation photo diary should be over, and give way to a different period, one with hope and plans in sight.
