I am a freelance photographer based in northern Italy (Treviso-Venice), one of the two most affected areas from coronavirus Covid-19 in my country. As most of Italians, I’ve been heavily affected from the lockdown and spent the last 49 days mostly in my flat (series is still ongoing): I didn’t want too shoot empty streets and reportage style images, so I decided to take a more personal view and to investigate this pandemic from the inside. Then project tries to show how quarantine influences my life and my creativity, creating and photographing a new installation exclusively made out of my household objects every day, until the end of isolation. I am not in the pictures, but all the objects and the spaces I tried to include tell a lot about me and the flat I live in; furthermore, creating a new picture everyday is more and more difficult day after day, exactly like living isolated. Every installation is ‘freestanding’, no hidden support or photoshop has been used: this is not important for the final result, but it’s fundamental for me, to create the sort of atmosphere and mood I need to make the picture.
This image is part of a wider series that was submitted and selected by the judges as one of three standout series from the competition.
