Loco Down: Home alone with a person, I do not know

LOCO 1 | I DON’T KNOW YOU

I was locked with a person I do not know.

That is something that I had never done in my life.

I lived in a large family of seven, and it was hard to find myself in our house alone, and If I did, I was busy doing things I felt were important.

What does it truly mean to be alone, by myself? I had no clue, I wondered how people Could exist without anyone around. What’s the fun in that?

Then something that no one expected in the country happened, lockdown.

LOCO 3 | REVELATION

I had no choice but to work by myself. Talking to everyone else through calls and no face-to-face interactions.

I felt like I could adapt to this, but as time went by, It was getting harder. I felt like I was going crazy. I wanted to get out, to be free, to hug and touch the people I love but I was worried for their safety.

LOCO 2 | CRAZY

I continued to struggle till I decided to face the fact that I do not know how to be with myself. My life had been shaped by external experiences and zero experiences from within.

LOCO 5 | THE ANIMAL WITHIN

Lockdown has revealed an animal within us that we might not know existed. Those that have felt the effects are ourselves and those close to us.

LOCO 6 | THE FEELING

The portraits speak to the feeling and experiences that I and some of the people in the world have felt and had while in Lockdown dubbed (Loco Down).
