On July 26, 2020 Alex Llovet landed with his wife and two daughters in Bristol, UK. Due to COVID-19, a few hours before the English government imposed a fourteen-day quarantine on citizens from various countries, including Spain.
Llovet made all the images in this work during his confinement, in an old isolated house in the middle of the forest in Cornwall, an idyllic place where his in-laws reside. The author questions with his camera the limits between reality and fiction, and manages to capture our most intimate fears and hopes arising from this global crisis s ublimating the everyday life of his family life to reveal realities beyond appearances.
In his own words: "In a context as dystopian as it is disconcerting, I turned the photographic act into a poetic refuge from which to alleviate the effects of the lack of freedom, because even paradise can become a prison if you are forced to stay in it. "
