These images were taken in Berlin during the recent Covid- 19 lock down. During 3 months we have isolated ourselves. Our apartment has only two separate rooms : our daughter's room and an open space including a kitchen, living space and bedroom. Throughout this period of time personal space was substantially altered and while we were pressured to mainly stay inside, our behaviour changed — the way our bodies circulate, move and connect shifted; By contact, we were compiled to realize our human being texture and feel. This series is precisely about touch, body and gesture ; To be read as an archive of human resilience.
