The great french photographer Gilbert Garcin died on April, 2020. These images are from the second part of a series I created inspired in his work and as a heartfelt tribute. It was done during the lockdown and solely at home with photos I took of myself and many of the photos I have taken through the years. It is a very important series for me, since I couldn't go out I had to go in. This Series tells a lot about me during the pandemic: my dreams, my desires and some of my nightmares and suffering too. I constructed the scenes trying to evoke entirely the feeling of Garcin's work.
