-Tomorrow, Today and Yesterday-
2020 is undoubtedly a year that will stay with us forever. The Covid-19 Pandemic has shown us that perhaps not everything is guaranteed, and that we must give more value to the little things around us. For all of us, this “stop” in time had a certain effect, be it positive or negative. Let us say that we are experiencing a kind of absent year, where we put ourselves to the test, in the company of an uncertainty that does not leave us.
Between the positive and negative effects, there are things that don't seem to change, things that make us wonder and attitudes of a society that is lost long before the virus appeared. With all these effects, harmful or not, my look as a photographer tended to change. This point of view began to be more critical, more objective, to pay more attention to the trivial and to find beauty in it, to notice the light and shadow of a form charged with emotion.
The loneliness in the night trips during the quarantine, the arrivals and departures of those we love, the face of those who face/confront the virus in/on the front line, and the innocence of the children, the desire to feel, the desire to escape, the feeling of the abyss, the uncertainty that consumes us, and the enormous desire to look for out the hope that we yearn for.
On certain occasions, I have come to the conclusion that the quarantine, and this whole pandemic process that we are going through, reveals emotions that may be dormant... 2020 may not only be a year of stopping, but of change!
“I've lived through things I cannot say
Back then we dreamt of yesterday
It seemed as if the only way
And now we look for hope and pray”
