Self-Portraits in Confinement

Everything is paralyzed.  Online conferences pull me away instead of closer. The future is a present that draws a slippery dystopia where it cracks the social fabric of a fractured society.  It´s another chronicle of a death foretold.
I´m observing my son: Pandemic´s generation. What kind of future are we leaving you? These photographs from the present are my legacy to avoid the future will not be turned into the ashes of the past. 
There is no memory without pictures. 
We will die observing the world.

SELF-PORTRAITS: PHOTOGRAPHERS IN CONFINEMENT
Curated by Svetlana Bachevanova

A collection of self-portraits made by photojournalists from five continents during the unprecedented lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Photographers are people on the road, living to document the lives of others.
Constrained by the lockdown, many of them had their first experience of being still long enough to begin seeing and understanding small details about who they are, their lifestyles and values, that were overshadowed while they were busy. These self-portraits express their experience.

This is a unique collection of self-portraits from some of the best lenses in photojournalism at a historic moment.
