Since the beginning of 2020, I have been working on two series of portraits particularly relevant for our present situation where Covid-19 is forcing us to re-evaluate the way we live our lives.
“Home Alone – Lockdown” series : Many of the elderly are being forced to stay alone, further exacerbating the problem of the elderly in our society. In addition, this situation is detrimental to other groups in society who suffer from depression, disabilities and other health problems.
“Mugshots”: A mugshot is a photograph taken by the police after someone has been arrested. These works are based on actual police photograph of people who have committed crimes, whether through neglect (homelessness, drug addiction) or intention (sexual predators, violence). These men or women can be seen as a metaphor for the choices we all make in our lives.
