My wife, Natalie, is now five months pregnant with twins. Reflecting on our insecurities about the Coronavirus pandemic, I photographed her wearing a face mask and gloves –the iconic apparatus of protection against the new virus.

We decided to leave our home in London and return temporarily to our city of birth, Athens, Greece. The relocation has put us in a compulsory 14-days-quarantine, while the whole country is in lockdown.

None of our plans for the future will be as we had thought. The pandemic is affecting everything –the birth of our children, our jobs, our income, our home.
