In the streets where before there were people walking, animals never seen before in our cities and towns appeared. We learned then that our neighbors had pets.
A small collection of people who walked their pets in the worst of the Spanish lockdown d

During the first days of the Spanish lockdown, everything looked like an oil painting. Only people who went out for the most essential broke the monotony of the streets that were losing color. As a photojournalist I had to work both in hospitals and in shelters for homeless people. Always on my way back from those places I saw people walking dogs. So I started taking pictures of my neighbors on deserted streets with their dogs. But the state law that the government promulgated at that time did not only speak of dogs, but of pets. He then began a trip throughout the state traveling more than 4000 km by car on deserted roads looking for those people who went out of the norm and walked their unique pets.

A pandemic bestiary that shows another surreal part of that dystopia that we are experiencing in 2020 in the Spanish state.
