Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Virus

2020 — Covid-19 quarantine

Since the first day of quarantine I had given myself two rules: do not think about the aftermath and do not accept video calls. At the beginning the exceptional nature of the situation was an adrenaline rush, but as time went on you slowly get used to it. I live in the countryside where the effects of coronavirus are less impressive and this can be frustrating for a photographer. The bright side are the narrow streets around, an escape to overcome the sense of claustrophobia. I started taking pictures inside my perimeter, or little outside, without an idea of wanting to tell something. It was quite a different kind of gym that made the isolation more comfortable. However, in the end I accepted a couple of video calls.
