A collective project that documents, through photography, the indelible marks of the pandemic on each of us. A story in images that extends over time, becoming an opportunity to reflect on the things of the world and their complexity. This type of project allows us to take a look at this period, so close, but also so distant in everyone’s mind, busy day after day trying to start from scratch. Going back to these moments, through the eyes of others and reading the reality of different photojournalists can be an excellent way for everyone to come back to this period, perhaps to metabolize it a little better: hence the fact that the exhibition also in Milan it represents a great opportunity for all Milanese.
