I was staying all by myself in my apartment during the COVID19 lock down. While I was staying at home I was trying to understand what was happening around me and inside of me. Photography became a tool that helped me not only to document the process but also trace my feelings and thoughts and to organize them. It was the only way for me to hold on to this contradictory and difficult time and to be able to grasp it.
While I felt like I‘m being part of an experiment that I haven‘t signed up for, photography helped me to keep going.
