A year ago, the world went into a lockdown due to the COVID -19 pandemic. As a humanitarian photographer who spends most of her time in the field documenting stories, I found myself spending long days and nights in isolation at my apartment that I shared with two housemates. In April 2020, we started Ramadhan (one of the holiest months in the Islamic calendar) in lockdown. Some had the opportunity to spend time with their loved ones at home, while others like me spent time alone. In this series, I share some of my most intimate accounts in quarantine in Mogadishu, Somalia.
