The Quarantine in Their Eyes

These are difficult days, the outside world has stopped in silence. Inside the children find their spaces and creatively define new spaces, exploring fears of what is happening “out there”. Their games become a means to express their fears.

The Quarantine in Their Eyes is from a series of photos of my children, who found strength to face this great silence everyday with games and smiles. The photos portray that situation through their eyes, “our children,” the victims without responsibility. The images were taken in March 2020 during the first lockdown in Italy that lasted 3 months.
