Quarantine Close up

Quarantine Close Up – Portraying during Coronavirus pandemic⁣.⁣⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣When this Coronavirus crisis started, one of the things I miss the most was the idea of not being able to take photographs.
I remember that thinking to not use my camera for an indefinite time wasn’t a nice feeling at all.
I lived my quarantine days the best I can, then I just realized something.

In this weird time the way we meet people changes. ⁣⁣⁣
Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, Google Hangouts, Whatsapp became the only instruments through which we can experience our friends and family. ⁣⁣⁣
Thanks to them we are able to feel less lonely.

How can I genuinely represent these relationships?⁣⁣⁣

I thought to immortalize these months showing how we experience private relationships during the quarantine.
So I asked my friends to participate in this and their enthusiasm was vital to me.
I always set up a similar environment for every person I portrayed. Solid color background and the computer screen well visible.
In this way, I can obtain the same effect.
The depth between two different backgrounds, emphasizes, now more than ever, how the technological means destroys defined walls of our quarantine.⁣
The virtual space, usually seen as an enemy to a genuine relationship, is now a real and essential meeting place to survive the isolation. ⁣⁣
