19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
28 Days Later: Total Lockdown

This photo is based on the situation with COVID-19 and represents the total lockdown of humanity in our own individual spaces. Ordinary people are placed in transparent blisters packs, which symbolize the limitations imposed upon us in this period. We are locked in separate spaces but still visible to each other in real life through windows or through social networks but unable to communicate in life or leave our homes or apartments. The observers in protective suits as well as the transparency of blisters show an almost total control of the situation in an effort to stop the virus.
