Series of photographs is a sudden prominence on the surface of the psyche. Although you can be locked in one room and deprived of any contact, life still goes on. A series of photographs show scenes of my own life on the 10th floor of solitaire in which I convey the unfolding of life from an isolated perspective. I started a series of photos in self-isolation after we found out that we were positive for Corona Virus. Photography was the medium with which I could express myself best, without keeping everything in myself. I didn’t want a bad mood to take me away from photography. After we got over COVID-19 and came out of isolation, life went on. I continued to photograph the scenes through the following year following the forecasts and the seasons, which, in isolation and after, were the only proof to us that we were still alive and that nothing stoped. Nothing will stop us, and nothing will push us very far from everything except ourselves. It’s all of your own choices. If we look close enough, even the most modest apartment has beauty! The main backbone of this photo project is to show that all our power is in the present moment, no matter where we are and how we feel!
