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 isolation from society. In addition, this situation is detrimental to other groups in society who suffer from health problems, depression, and other disabilities .
“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 victims or as perpetrators depending on the situation, and are a metaphor for the choices we make in our lives.
